OPERA SOFTWARE today released a beta version of Opera Unite, which the
firm claims can turn any computer into a client/server for sharing
documents and other media.
The Swedish browser developer said that the release would shake up the
old model of the web, and let the home computer serve content to other
computers directly across the internet.
Opera Unite will let users chat with friends without signing into a
third-party application, and share photos, movies and other content
simply by providing friends and contacts with an address to a computer
rather than to a site like YouTube.
