The source code hints at server-side compression (this isn't a new thing for Opera.) I wonder.

Opera Turbo has already been announced for Opera 10, and is present in the latest beta.

As cool as this sounds, I would like to know the security holes that are going to open up with this. There is a reason hosting a server on your local machine isn't so easy; there is a lot of security that needs to be thought about and put in place to protect your system. With enabling any end-user to be operate their own web server, Opera better have a strict security hold on their browser.

My laptop isn't connected to the internet most of the day and even if I kept my desktop up 24/7, I'd much rather just use Apache and turn my box into a web server rather than use Opera. But I do understand that Unite is more for the non-technical user rather than for most of us on these forums.

However, seeing how development of apps for the likes of the iPhone and Facebook exploded and transformed their usefulness and enjoyment, I see that this will be the saving grace for Unite. If the app development kicks off big, I could see many users jumping on the Unite train.

I think the biggest hurdle for Opera is that they're basically competing with the likes of Facebook, or any social network for that matter. They all allow chatting, pic and video sharing, blogs, and LOTS of different apps to play games together, share interests with friends, etc. To the end-user, why change their way of sharing their lives online when it works so well already? Myspace not only has been dying due to Facebook's App development, but also since users realized that having the ability to change their HTML and styles usually resulted in extremely unreadable, slow pages. Unite could suffer the same fate before it even gets off the ground.

Still it is too early to guess how this will turn out but congrats to Opera for the launch.

They won't let you execute 'server-side' code on the webserver 'app'.
