More on Opera Freedom

By | June 14, 2009 | 8 Comments


With all the hype building around Opera Software, there are hundreds of comments all over the internet, guessing what it will be. While some of speculations include: new widgets platform, cloud computing related technology, etc. there is one which makes more sense than any other (at least in my point of view):

Mike (@mydigitalself) (at TechCrunch)
“If you take a step back and look at the evolution of the social web, our content is fast becoming an integral part of the web, and our content is stored on devices – mainly laptops and phones.

Now imagine that your device, rather than being a consumer of the web and having to explicitly push data up to the web, becomes PART OF the web.

I think that Opera may just create a P2P web that easily allows you to share your content with anyone or on any site. Your device effectively becomes a web site.”

Any other ideas?
