Opera is joining the AI browser race as the browser developer announced today that it would be integrating AI-generated content (AIGC) services into its PC and mobile browsers.

After Google, Microsoft, and Baidu unveiled their plans this week to integrate AI-powered chatbot services into their browsers, Opera is also taking steps towards expanding its existing AI program into AIGC for its browser, news and gaming products through its own solutions and new as well as existing partnerships.

To keep its track record of offering users direct access to the internet’s most in-demand platforms, such as TikTok, Telegram, and WhatsApp, Opera is planning to add popular AI-generated content services to the browser sidebar. This includes ChatGPT, which also powers Microsoft’s Bing.

On top of that, Opera is also working on improving the browsing experience with new features that will interact with generative AI-powered capabilities. One of the first features to be tested is a new “Shorten” button in the address bar that will be able to use AI to generate short summaries of any webpage or article. Details of other AI-powered features have yet to be disclosed.

“It is Opera’s belief that with AI solutions springing up both for text, image, and audio generation and in countless other forms, we are at the brink of a new era of creativity on the Web. That’s why we’re reshaping the browser to allow our users to tap into all these resources and to unfold their full potential in the best possible way,” Krystian Kolondra, EVP PC Browsers and Gaming at Opera, said in a press release.

Opera is no stranger to incorporating the latest technologies into its browser. Last year, it launched the Opera Crypto Browser, a web3-focused browser that comes with a native non-custodial crypto wallet and other crypto-related features. In November 2022, it also launched a tracking and discovery tool with on-chain and off-chain analytics DegenKnows to help crypto traders.

The web3 browser supports eight blockchains ecosystems: Solana, Polygon, StarkEx, Ronin, Celo, Nervos, IXO, and Bitcoin. Its chain-agnostic approach allows users to users can access games, dApps, and NFT marketplaces on these networks and benefit from lower gas fees and faster transactions. The crypto browser also includes an NFT analytics tool and a suite of browser security features.

“In more than 25 years of our company’s history, we have always been at the forefront of browser innovation. Whether inventing browser tabs or providing our users with built-in access to generative AI tools, we always push the limits of what’s possible on the web,” said Song Lin, Co-CEO of Opera. “Following the mass interest in generative AI tools, we believe it’s now time for browsers to step up and become the gateway to an AI-powered web.”
