    ha, pity you asked that buddy, i dont exactly remember, but it was something to do with a bit-torrent web site initially viewed in Safari, that recomended Torch.

    it was then i discovered that Torch can handle bit-torrent files without the aid of any 3rd party software ! but then that is sommat that shouldnt be mentioned ?

    anyway, i paid the price, my MBP hasnt worked since ! LOL i thought it was a virus or worse !

    I have not checked in ages but Opera used to have a built in Bit Torrent client.

    They removed it along with the IRC client as an attempt to cut out unnecessary components. I think it's a shame since I thought, even with all of those features, Opera was pretty nimble.

    The latest release of Opera seems faster but still lags a bit behind Chrome. And yes, I also miss the IRC client although I never did use Bit Torrent.

    Should be interesting to see how Opera performs when they migrate away from Presto to Blink. I imagine that's still a way out but they have started it - they have a beta of a WebKit based browser available for Android. It's not Blink but I can't imagine that swapping out WebKit in favour of Blink will be all that hard.
