So I was downloading a torrent file and when I double clicked it, Opera opens up and tries to download the torrent through Operas built in torrent program. I've never installed Opera on my computer and I can't find it anywhere on my computer (not in the Applications folder, searched with Finder, looked around, etc.). All I find is an Opera.gif file.

I have Transmission installed for torrents but anyone have any idea why Opera opened up and why it's on my computer? lol

Opera isn't installed on Leopard by default, but for some reason CS3 installs it. If you've got CS3 installed, that would be why it's there.

The recently announced Creative Suite 3 (CS3) application by Adobe includes a built-in rendering engine of the Opera browser. Opera’s rendering engine is used by several components in the suite.

In other good news, Adobe has announced Creative Suite 3 where Opera is used by several components as a rendering engine.

It's installed at these locations:

/Applications/Adobe Bridge CS3/Bridge CS3.app/Contents/MacOS/Opera.app
/Applications/Adobe Device Central CS3/Device Central.app/Contents/MacOS/Required/Opera.app


You could delete it, but it might break Bridge and/or Device Central...

Adobe Products use Opera for their help files. So if you have photoshop installed, it installs Opera.
