    Lightbulb Opera Unite and Link a minimalistic alternative to the cloud

    Some of you may not be aware of Opera Unite

    Introduction to Opera Unite

    Opera Unite is a collaborative technology that allows you to share, connect and collaborate directly between computers across the Web, without going through a central, third-party server.
    How Opera Unite is different to traditional data sharing

    With more traditional content sharing, you have to upload the content you want to share, and this is then stored on a central, third-party server, out of your control. Your friends access this stored content from the third-party server.

    With Opera Unite, your friends view the content that is sitting on your computer.

    This is not intended for the novice, it is turned off by default.

    "Discontinuing Opera Unite, Opera Widgets and Voice
    With this release, Opera Unite and Opera Widgets are removed by default for new users. We encourage all developers to move their solutions to the extensions platform. Support for the legacy X+V standard and the UI voice commands has also been removed, as the voice-detection library is no longer supported by the third-party vendor."
