Opera browser to bundle Bit Torrent

Posted by: Stephen Baker on July 07, 2005

Norway’s Opera Software just announced that it’s incorporating the downloading tool Bit Torrent into the next version of its browser. Bit Torrent should make it easier for users to download massive files, from Linux operating systems to pirated Hollywood movies. This feature could provide Opera with a market boost, helping it to compete with the popular open-source browser (and darling of the blog world), Mozilla Firefox. Opera, while small, is a trendsetter. Look for other browsers to add downloading firepower.

Tabbed browsing, Quick Find, fraud protection, saved sessions, Speed Dial, notes and the trash make from Opera Browser, a browser more better than it was. Significant speed allow you to spend more time online. I installed it, it works very well and i got it from here: Opera Browser
