Bring back Opera Unite (Peer-to-Peer file sharing) & IRC Chat rooms!

  • Opera Unite - I still remember this feature from a decade ago that was very useful. It allowed you to turn you PC into a web server to share files with anyone around the world without revealing your IP address. All they had to know was your url. You could search for other Unite users and see what they were sharing (music, ebooks, etc.). It was a great way to share files without having to torrent.

    IRC chat rooms - Another feature I remember from a decade ago that surprisingly still works if you download an old version of Opera 10/11. It's perhaps the only thing that still works in the older versions of Opera lol. I know IRC is mostly used by geeks but it's still one of the best ways to communicate with others on the internet.

  • Opera Unite can be implemented into Flow, and IRC can be implemented into Messenger rather easily I imagine.

  • @daj I would have suggested pinboards for Unite myself. Messenger is for a specific site, but IRC could be another messenger.
