New Opera Unite reinvents the Web

 

Norway’s Opera Software opened a new, free service on June 16 that enables simple sharing of personal computers’ pictures, files or music with anyone on the Internet.

Opera unveiled Opera Unite, a new technology that shakes up the old client-server computing model of the Web. Opera Unite turns any computer into both a client and a server, allowing it to interact with and serve content to other computers directly across the Web, without the need for third-party servers.

Opera Unite makes serving data as simple and easy as browsing the Web. For consumers, Opera Unite services give greater control of private data and make it easy to share data with any device equipped with a modern Web browser.
