    memory leak? do you have the latest opera browser? If so, try a previous one, if not, try a newer one

    What version are you using?

    And I could be wrong here but how can it use 6GB of RAM if it's 32-bit?

    Seems like a bug to me. It's caching the files into the RAM instead of writing to disk.
    Can't you use some proper software for such downloads:D

    dont use opea for heavy downloads. i think that is ur problem. it must be storing the dload on the ram? also try the latest browser i have it and it seems to be good.

    You are using Opera to do bittorrent.

    Use something like qBittorrent instead.

    Agreed, Utorrent has a small footprint and d/l's at a quick rate usually.
