Opera’s new AI browser, Opera One, makes you feel like Tony Stark

I downloaded the Opera One browser to try it out – it’s not perfect. But it isn’t terrible.

The fan-favorite Opera browser announced their 100th iteration of its flagship program, and it came out today (you can download it here). Opera One is everything you love about the quirky browser but with the added capability of using their AI, Aria.

Aria was added to the Opera browser in beta back in May. But this ChatGPT-powered sidebar feature is already looking pretty good.

If you’re looking for some basic information or how to use features on the Opera browser, it can help put you in the right direction. But, it goes a little further if utilized right.

A person is being welcomed by opera one AI-powered assistant named Aria, and is being prompted to sign into their Opera account or create a free one in order to continue.

Before starting. you just need to sign into your Opera account. If you don't have an account. you can create one for free. N CONTINUE K

Aria AI on Opera One is now available, so I tried it

I downloaded the Opera One browser to try it out, as I use Opera GX for some of its features on one of my computers. Aria works as well as any current ChatGPT app. With that said, it’s not perfect. But it isn’t terrible.

Booting it up, it acts like any other ChatGPT app. This one has you sign in to your Opera account, which syncs across your browsers.

I asked it to give me the best video game-related news from today, and it spits out a fine mixture of older news, a headline from years ago, a listicle title, free advertising for Best Buy, and a few directly-copied headlines from today.

When I asked if I could have links to these headlines, Aria told me that it was not within its capabilities. So, it seems we’re still in a situation where AI isn’t fully reliable just yet.

One thing that the Opera browsers have had available since May is the AI Prompt feature. It works together with our search engine to help you find more information on stuff you highlight or right-click.

It’s nice for quick information, translations, or search capabilities focused on the highlighted text. If you ask for more through the “explain further,” Aria does its job integrating into your browser experience pretty well, from what I see.

Unfortunately, it’s only a matter of time before AI, like Aria on the Opera One browser, tries to take our jobs (even us as journalists). But, based on the conversation I just had with Aria, that’s going to be a while away.

You can grab the Opera One browser and check it (and Aria) out for yourself. If you’re looking for a clean, solid browser, I highly recommend Opera any day. It runs smoothly and has a lot of fun bells and whistles.

If you’re grabbing any of the Opera browsers for the AI capabilities, expect it to run about as well as any other AI currently out.

For now, AI should do what it does best: stick to being a basic tool for nerds to tinker with and give out free Windows keys while pretending to be your grandmother.
