Opera (NASDAQ: OPRA) is set to integrate the new, popular artificial-intelligence generated content service ChatGPT to stay in par with other companies using the technology.
Also, the company is expanding its existing AI program into AIGC for its browser, news and gaming products through both its own programs and both new and existing partnerships.
“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,” said co-CEO of Opera, Song Lin.
The growth in interest in AI services has surged after ChatGPT recently bypassed the 100 million user mark. Now Opera’s proposed AI integration follows the browser’s record of giving users access to the internet’s most desired platforms, like TikTok, Telegram and WhatsApp.
Opera’s plans include adding popular AI-generated content services to the browser’s sidebar. It’s also working on adding new features that will interact with the new generate AI-powered capabilities to the browser. Among these features is a new shorten button on the address button that will be able to use AI to generate summaries of any webpage or article.

One of the issues associated with generative AI is the influx of new material. Generative AI will help create written materials faster, which means a flood of new material. Opera also developed an AI-solution that filters and summarizes content for users in ways that suit their interests.
“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,” said Krystian Kolondra, executive vice president of PC Browsers and Gaming at Opera.
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.”
Opera’s implementation of ChatGPT into its browser comes shortly after Microsoft’s adoption of OpenAI’s system into its own browser. Also, Google recently announced its own Bard AI tool.
One of the biggest issues users have faced with ChatGPT is getting access. Problems include network congestion as OpenAI has started limiting usage following the rise in demand.
Consequently, alternatives to ChatGPT have already starting making an appearance. Two competitors include Chatsonic, a conversational AI chatbot, and Writefull, which offers automated writing and proofreading for academics.
