If you have to very often send or share files with friends or for business purpose; then; you know; how difficult is sending large volume files via mail or services like yousendit. The online file sharing websites like Dropbox or Windows Live Skydrive have limitation or one has to have a paid subscription.

But recently I came across an application with which help we can share links of any file up to any extent from our local computer… means we not need to upload those files via email or any file sharing sites. But only have to kept on our system as long as we want to that file to be shared or being downloaded. This have been made possible using Opera Unite; which creates a peer to peer connection with the buddies we have sent links and our computer.

But the only limitation you have is; it can only work with opera browser… you can download this browser from the link below…

So I assume you have downloaded the Opera browser now install it double clicking on Opera_1152_int_Setup file you have just downloaded. If you need installation instructions watch the video below…
