Opera Unite: a cloud-based promise to ‘reinvent the web,’ again June 16, 2009

Opera has a little surprise in store for you this morning with its Opera Unite service. A web-based application built into the Opera browser that the Norwegian-based company says will “reinvent the Web” as it makes your computer, data, and media available via any web browser through the Unite cloud. A bold claim, sure, but just look at the breadth of the cloud-based services available to Mac, PC, or Linux/Unix users:

* File sharing — securely share files direct from your computer

* Web server — turns your home computer into a web server via Opera Unite URL

* Media player — direct link to your music collection from any web browser

* Photo sharing — shares your image library over the web without requiring a photo service

* Lounge — self-contained chat service running on your computer

* Fridge — a place where friends and family can post notes

We’re taking the service / software for a spin right now and at first blush, we’re duly impressed by the ease of setup and control.
