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.
