Opera Software announced the integration of AI into its web browsers today. Aria is based on OpenAI technology and is launched as a preview in Opera One and Opera for Android browsers.

Unlike Google Bard, which is not available in some regions, including Europe, Aris is available in more than 180 countries, including Europe.

Aria is a free addition to the Opera web browser. While it looks like a ChatGPT integration in the browser on first glance, notable differences exist.

Communication with the AI starts with a click in the Opera browser. A short introduction is displayed on first start before the chat interface is displayed. Opera users may type queries into a text field to get replies by the AI.

Opera Software notes that Aria's implementation of ChatGPT includes the ability to live search the Internet. All of this is also available in Bing Chat, but Opera Software has added more capabilities to Aria that are specific to the browser.

The company notes, for instance, that Aria is aware of the entire support documentation of the browser. Opera users who run into issues may ask Aria about it and may get quick answers to resolve the issues they experience or make changes to the browser based on easy to follow instructions.

This sounds very similar to Windows Copilot, which Microsoft plans to roll out this year to Windows 11 devices.

Aria is integrated into Opera's Composer infrastructure, which allows for the integration of multiple AI models in the future. Opera Software mentions "search services powered by Opera's key partners" specifically. All of the features will be available in a single interface, though.

Opera Software plans to expand the functionality and features of Aria and AI integration in the browser in the future.

The company unveiled a preview version of Opera One earlier this year. The web browser, which can be downloaded as a preview, is a browser with a modular design that is putting the focus on AI. When Opera launched One, it shipped the browser with an AI prompt feature. Today's release improves AI significantly by adding Aria to the browser.

Interested users may download Opera One for the desktop operating systems Windows, Linux and Mac, and Opera for Android beta to start testing the Aria integration of the browser.

    Clearly, things are out of control with this tech companies. In essence, artificial intelligence (AI) is a new method of stealing your data while making you believe it is doing you good. Because of this, Microsoft is rushing to incorporate it into everything at this time.

        @Rich @boris
        If privacy is so bad, then post your private messages online and your credit card and social security numbers. Post your emails public on twitter.

        Read your whole posts out in front of a mirror and then think about how that sounds to adults.

        Only sheeple use apps that come with a home appliance. My smart TV is isolated in a VLAN with no internet.

        Your point? What is your point? Because 1 thing is bad you let the companies win?
        I fight data thieves even harder.

    I attempted using it and it requires registration with personal data, so I never got to actually talking to it, as I refuse revealing my phone number.

    Just a few more years and they will be so desperate for me entering my secret questions into the text area field that even freeloaders can use it 100% free without registration.

    Riddle me this: Can I eat marmalade and peanut butter without being judged?

      Man you can give a anonymous email address and a default name. It does not require phone numbers! Just calm down and stop the whole Data Privacy innuendo. It really make me boring.

      @Hitomi–No, because the combo sounds delicious. My evening meal consists of peanut butter and honey w/ sliced bananas sandwich along with a vanilla protein shake spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg with a 3/4 inch slice of pineapple for desert.

      Is Aria part of Meta?
