Opera Browser with built in Bit Torrent client
« on: May 13, 2006, 06:43:56 PM »

Talk about timely!

The monthly PLUG meeting just last Thursday was all about Bit Torrent software programs.

I just discovered the latest Beta of Opera 9 now has a Bit Torrent program built right into it.

I havn't tried to download a Torrent file using Opera, at this time.

Nice! I notice that the BitTorrent website has a link to a Firefox extension to do searches. I'll have to give that a try. I'm testing out SUSE 10.1 right now and doing a late Spring cleaning so I'm going to have lots to do this week. :D

I went to the Digitaldistraction torrent web site and clicked on aTorrent and Opera automatically started the download. Very slick!

Oops. I had misunderstood - when I read your post before, I thought you meant that it just had a search feature in it. Downloading torrents via Opera, now that's pretty cool.  :shock:

I always thought this was a great idea. Not that the torrent app in opera is anything to write home about, but it will get the average user a much smoother experience. No need to install and use another program Azureus(sp?) and learn how to use it. Just click and download.

(I'm not bashing opera or it's torrent application, but it certainly doesn't have the array of features a BitTorrent only client has(Superseeding, Queuing, etc.).)

Unfortunately the popularity of opera is a downfall, this is a great idea. It would be nice to have a torrent application in Firefox, or even a plug-in that asks to auto install when you download a .torrent file.
