Opera 10.10 is visually more compelling, and technologically speaking, it goes where no browser has gone before,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software in a press release. “We believe that, over time, Opera Unite has the power to erase preconceptions of how we access and share information on the Web.”

Opera has unveiled its secret project, which it was hoping would “change the web”. With Opera 10, the company is planning on introducing new technology called Opera Unite.

Opera Unite allows users to share files and host websites right from in their browser.

“This technology is a radical first step towards addressing what I call “the Internet’s unfulfilled promise”, which is about our ability to connect with each other and participate meaningfully online—on our own terms, and without losing control of our data” writes Lawrence Eng, Opera Software Product Analyst.

More information and early download links can be found on the Opera Unite homepage.
