Opera Software The Opera team has released version 10.10 of their feature-rich browser. This is the first Opera release to come with Opera Unite, which combines the web browser with a web server, so that users can share data directly between one another, without the need for a third party.

Both miss the point that Unite is a platform that doesn't require tech knowledge to install and is a green field waiting for innovative ideas to fill it.

Wow. An explosion of servers being run by non-technical people really would be a green field just waiting to be filled by innovative malware.

Firstly, what do you think the web is? It's a big scary place where people either wander into the badlands unexpectedly or the badlands find them.

You might as well say the same thing about *ANYTHING* on the internet.

Facebook, Dropbox, IRC, MSN, Email, whatever you name can be bad.

That is why it is unfortunately nearly 100% necessary to have anti-malware software (or sense) of some type on any machine that connects to any other, no matter how. (Be that directly or via physically transferred data)

Seriously, is spouting crap like that the best use of those who seemingly hate Opera for not being F/OSS/Firefox/Chrome's time?

Filling computers with malware can be done today. There's nothing that makes Unite any more or less vulnerable to malware.

Fail.
