Opera is the latest browser to add AI support, including ChatGPT in the sidebar

Opera browser ai prompts

Opera is the latest web browser to join the AI gold rush. Today, the company behind the popular browser announced some new AI features. One of them is called AI Prompts, and it actually sounds like it might be an interesting way for people to learn more about web content.

Opera states that the new feature works just by selecting some text on a web page. In another browser, you could copy it, or maybe use a traditional search to learn more. AI Prompts is supposed to over even more:

Maybe a chunk of text was long or confusing. AI Prompts can help you shorten it or explain it for you, whether it’s a paragraph, a whole article, even a website! Or perhaps you’ve stumbled upon something that you’re really interested in – a fashion trend, a culinary fancy, some new, previously unheard-of musical artist – and you want to know more and more. AI Prompts will take you down your internet rabbit hole, since you can ask it to suggest more relevant content based on what you’re reading.

The new feature can even help you write a Tweet about the selected text, a joke, or a poem. Opera users can download the new version and then, during Easy Setup, turn on the Early Access option by toggling the “AI Prompts' selection. Opera GX users can do the same by selecting the “Early Bird” option.

The new version of Opera also adds support for two AI chatbots in its sidebar: ChatGPT and ChatSonic:

They can offer you assistance with a wide range of queries and issues. You can generate ideas, summaries, translations, itineraries. You can write code, learn music, get help on math, draft text – the list goes on and on! ChatSonic is additionally so clever that it can create images for you.

The support requires users to register for either or both ChatGPT and ChatSonic before they can use them in the Opera sidebar.

Opera has also released the full changelog for the new version, 97.0.4719.26:
