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.

great idea

It's a very great idea, even if most of the new "service" are useless, although file sharing and web hosting one seems promising for very narrow usecase (because of bandwidth concerns in canada/usa/mexico, this problem isn't present in Europe or asia).

For me this is most about the fact that they showed us their browser will now support "inside program" which can be a lot of things and I can see numbers of new innovative things we could do within this browser !

I don't know if putting everything inside a browser is a good idea or not, time will tell, but the fact that I have a file host/web server (with upnp to auto-set my router !!!) 2-3 clicks away is a great improvement over anything available right now, at least that I'm aware of. Lots of potential there.
