Opera Integrates BitTorrent in Upcoming Browser

Oslo-based Opera Software today announced that it has teamed with BitTorrent Inc. to include the BitTorrent(TM) protocol in the upcoming version of the Opera Web browser. Integrating this popular technology in the Opera browser means faster and more efficient downloads of large files.  This from the PR... BitTorrent's technology will be made available to users of the Opera browser in two ways: first, users can search for torrent files in the Opera browser's integrated search field, and second, when a file has been selected, Opera's Transfer Manager feature will handle the download. As a result of integrating BitTorrent into the Opera browser, users no longer need separate software for the searching and downloading of torrent content.  FYI, Opera is the developer of what is likely THE most widely used mobile web browser...
