  1. The folks over at Opera have taken the wraps off a new experimental project called Opera Unite, which turns any computer into both a client and a server, allowing users to share content with others over the Internet. Components of the browser-based service include file sharing, photo sharing, a notes exchange system, a shared media player, a chat lounge and the ability to run websites hosted on the user\'s PC.

    I have downloaded the Opera 10 Unite build, haven't found the time to mess around with the Unite stuff yet though.

    Sort of sad, but no matter how innovative Opera is, it'll probably never gain much traction in the web browser world. Firefox and it's add-ons seem to rule all.

    No not really sad. Opera rules mobile browsing and they must be doing something right if they have a dedicated user-base and companies like Nintendo are paying for their browser.

    This is what Opera should be doing to gain popularity INSTEAD of complaining about IE in Windows...
