Opera Software A few days ago Opera launched a placeholder website which said they were going to "reinvent" the web, on June 16. Well, it's June 16, and Opera has announced Opera Unite, a technology which allows individual Opera users to connect to one another, turning every machine running Opera Unite into a web server.

Actually,

All the basic components (and the services themselves) in Unite are based on existing or proposed standards, there is only a bit of glue here and there that is specific to our implementation of Unite (setting up DNS forwarding etc.) and that future competitors may want to do a bit differently.

Quoted from an Opera developer borg.
