Download Torrent Files Using Opera Web Browser

If you are not very familiar with torrents then it is very easy to download them using Opera web browser. The .torrent files are configuration files that list a group of smaller files that need to be downloaded to create the larger file you are trying to obtain. The great thing about using Opera for torrents is the fact that you don’t have to be very familiar with the configuration of a more complex file you can simply click on the .torrent file and Opera will do the rest after you tell it the directory to download the torrent to.

Please note that when downloading torrents other people can use your bandwidth to also download the torrents from you. When you are done downloading the torrents make sure to close Opera or your bandwidth will continue to be used to download the files you have downloaded.
