Opera Unite Is Going To Reinvent The Web… Or So They Say….

Remember I mentioned a teaser page that I saw on the Opera site last week. They’ve stopped teasing and announce Opera Unite. What is it you ask? I’ll let them tell you:

Opera today 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.

For Web developers, Opera Unite services are based on the same open Web standards as Web sites today. This dramatically simplifies the complexity of authoring cutting-edge Web services. With Opera Unite, creating a full Web service is now as easy as coding a Web page.

Sounds interesting. It might be cool if it catches on. You can take a look at the Opera Unite site and watch a YouTube video about the product. Then you can judge for yourself.

    • It’s hard to judge something that doesn’t exist yet. Having said that, it does sound interesting, but it has to catch on to be useful IMHO.
