Opera One Browser Launches With Native AI, Modular Design, Tab Islands, and More

Opera One, the new version of Opera browser, got its official public release today, boasting native artificial intelligence integration as the standout feature among its rivals.

Opera One introduces Aria, "the first truly native browser AI," according to the developers. Aria can be invoked via a command line, as well as from the browser sidebar, and leverages OpenAI's GPT technology to optimize web search. From the press release:

Aria is both a web and browser expert that allows users to collaborate with AI while looking for information on the web, generating text or code, or getting their product queries answered. When it comes to customer support, Aria is knowledgeable about Opera's entire database of support documentation and uses the company's current product knowledge to answer users' questions.

Opera One users on Mac can use a Command-/ keyboard shortcut to display an overlay and interact with Aria. Whenever a question comes to mind, they can use the command line to ask Aria a question and either interact with the browser AI's response immediately in the sidebar or go back to browsing. Opera One also includes access to ChatGPT in the browser sidebar.

Elsewhere, in what would be the 100th version of Opera, a new Tab Islands feature aims to change how users relate to browser tabs. Tab Islands keep associated tabs together based on context, and users can move tabs around, collapse islands to make them small and come back to them later, or save them into bookmarks or pinboards.

In addition, Opera One also features a new modular design that the developers say is "ready for a generative AI-based future," allowing the browser to dynamically adapt to users' needs by bringing only the key features to the foreground. There's also a new multithreaded compositor under the hood that aims to deliver a faster and smoother user interface layer.

Opera One is available today for free from the company's website, which includes download links for macOS, Windows, and Linux versions.

I've got to admit, they've got a nice aesthetic going on. Still, an AI integrated into your browser, having full access to what you look at and when, where, and in what context you're looking at it? Spooky…

Why can these companies not think beyond sticking a text box in a sidebar to interact with a semi-useless chatbot? How is this a game-changer?

Very underwhlemed. The tab grouping thing is kinda cool, but that's about it.

The parent company is owned by a Chinese consortium, and does have other products like Opera News I believe.

As long as there is zero ability to sync between iOS and Mac it is dead in the water to me.

If they implemented that simple function I might start using it.

They have flow working, but seriously I am not sending little messages to myself all day.

This syncing issue is a huge oversight.

So close, but no cigar.

I may have overlooked how to do this, so if anyone knows how to set sync up I'd be happy to hear.

Edit 2:

As a couple of people have claimed I am spreading MISINFORMATION, here are some links.

Sync between iOS and MacOS Opera does not exist.

Here is a link to Opera's Forum where many others ask about this very issue. (Oh and including one from a Opera Moderator saying

And yes, that was 2022…
Here we are in 2023 and many of us are still mystified about the missing Sync function.
