So, I just tried downloading the ISO for Elementary OS which is a 1.5 gig file. Now, when I try to download it via Chrome or Firefox, the download speed is about 90kbps but when I downloaded it via the magnet link (utorrent) I was able to able to download the file well under 10 minutes. What's going on? Browsing is fast and streaming is fast (4k fast). And speed test shows a download speed of about 70 Mbps. What's going on?

Besides the speed of your connection, your speed depends on how fast the server will send the file. When you get a torrent, you are getting pieces from lots of servers at once.
