What is the general opinion of the bit torrent client built into the Opera browser?

I use it b/c it's easy, but it's the only one i've ever used so i am not really sure what, if anything i am missing.

If you look at our Torrent Stats, you'll see that most people use uTorrent or Azureus since they give you so many options and are pretty easy to use.

Re: What is the general opinion of the bit torrent client built into the Opera browser?

I'm a big defender of Opera as a speedy, alternative browser. But the torrenting capability really strikes me as overkill - at least in its current form. I'd either cut it or, if they're determined to integrate that function, enhance it to more closely match uTorrent or Azureus.

It's probably okay if you're just an occasional leecher. But for multiple downloads or initial seeding, the two options mentioned by admin are much more capable.
