Opera strives for uncharted open spaces


    The company opens the first details of a special version of the browser Opera Space Edition

    April 1, 2010 - Oslo, Norway

    Opera Software takes browser wars to new heights. Today, the company publicly announced its new Future Opera Operations project, which is being implemented as part of the Lunar Surroundings program. The crown of this ambitious project will be the release of the first web browser for Internet access in outer space - Opera Space Edition.

    “I believe that the company should set itself the goal of launching a web browser into space,” said Jon von Tetzchner, co-founder of Opera Software. “This will be the most impressive project in the history of its development, the most important from the point of view of the long-term development of the Web and the most difficult to implement.”

    Key features of the browser Opera Space Edition:

    - Work on the Internet, leaving Earth. Opera Space Edition supports the Interplanetary Network Transport Protocol (INTP), which allows you to access the Network even when normal network protocols do not work due to high latency and light speed limitations.

    - Comfortable Internet access in a vacuum. Mission Mode allows you to control all operations with the browser, as well as its settings from the Mission Control Center, except when using the private mode of viewing web pages.

    - Integration of viewers. Opera Space Edition offers the ability to work with the Internet in augmented reality by rendering web content on a transparent surface that is compatible with all modern means of projecting images onto the retina or head displays.

    - Touch control for overall space gloves. Specially located sensors accurately determine the area on the screen that interests the user, and scales it to more accurately select the desired item.

    Opera Space Edition is in closed beta. Register at www.opera.com/portal/inspace to be one of the first to try the secret technologies developed by Future Opera Operations.
