Opera Unite

Is anyone trying the new Opera 10.10? They have added something new called Opera Unite. Stock, it allows files to be sent from computer to computer, allows music streaming, has a web server, a notes feature, as well as a messenger thingiee. There is several other tools available as well and I'm thinking they will probably expand the list like they have done with widgets.

While this sorta sounds like a good idea I am thinking that maybe they are trying to add to much. Opera already had email, irc chat, endless widgets, and a bittorrent feature already built in. None of which seems to be all that damned great and truthfully, I don't use.

Any opinions? Is this sorta thing the future of browers or is this just a massive case of bloat?

That whole sending files from comp to comp scares me what if I get my neighbor's amateur porn files? Then I would have to post it here using the blaster.

So I decided to check out Opera 10.10 even though I haven't liked Opera since I first checked it out back when it was a for-pay browser in the mid/late 90's. Guess whose UI they're ripping off? Google Chrome. Also the whole Opera Unite thing is just dumb as hell. But the browser is pretty fast and responsive so they managed to get that right.

I haven't used the stock UI since I first started using Opera sometime around version 6. My favorite skin is Tobs Theater Black (aka TTT Black) and have been using it since it came out sometime around version 7. I think it looks best when you put your own solid black background pic in it instead of the star-burst that's included. Also, I reduce the icon size down to 40% and use the "Jungle" color scheme to give it a nice green highlight to everything.

You can get the TTT Black skin here: (as well as a variety of other skins and custom buttons)
