Maximizing Efficiency: Leveraging ChatGPT in Opera for Superior Interactions

Opera began serving as my default web browser some time ago. The main reason for transitioning from Firefox to Opera was the efficiency of Workspaces for tab management. I also recently started using the Aria AI option for research, and now I have combined it with ChatGPT due to the benefits of having multiple voices for assistance.

Before delving into this topic, I want to clarify my stance on AI. I only utilize AI for research purposes and never as a tool for writing or creativity. That being said, I will demonstrate how to easily add ChatGPT to Opera. Fortunately, users only require the latest version of Opera, available for Linux, MacOS, and Windows. There is no need for an OpenAI API key, making the process very straightforward. After setting up an account, users can start using ChatGPT without any additional complications.

To add ChatGPT to Opera, begin by opening Opera’s Settings window and navigate to Advanced options, then AI Services. Here, enable ChatGPT, and you’ll notice a new icon in the Opera sidebar for ChatGPT. Click on the icon and log in with your OpenAI credentials or Google account. This will allow you to use ChatGPT to quickly respond to queries. The sidebar also saves queries for future reference.

An inconvenience is faced when using ChatGPT, as all chats need to be manually refreshed in the sidebar to be archived. However, once this process is completed, the chats can be easily shared through the share menu. When deciding between Aria and ChatGPT, consider using Aria if you primarily use the Opera browser on all devices, or use ChatGPT if you switch between different web browsers. Aria will provide access to your chats across all browser instances, whereas ChatGPT’s chats can be accessed from the address.
