    Trying to figure out how to enable the bittorrent client within Opera on a Mac. when I select a torrent I get the error "There is no application to open the URL magnet. I have the option to Choose Application, Cancel or Search App Store. If I choose Opera as the app I get the message "File Not Found".

    There hasn't been a torrent client in Opera since version 12.x.

    Is this article wrong, then? See point number 10: https://www.dailydot.com/debug/opera-browser/

    Apparently it is. As I said, there was a torrent client (and a mail client) in 12, but it was lost when they switched to being based on Chromium.

    @aleksod correct, that article is wrong (on more than one point). It looks like the journalist didn't actually use Opera before writing the article :)
