Opera’s Aria is a browser tool that simplifies the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and can be used as a research tool. It provides an alternative to using Google for searching.
As a writer, I have found Aria to be a useful tool when researching for my novels. However, one issue I encountered was having to repeat the same chat every time I needed to create a new character name. For example, I would ask Aria to list 100 classical composer names, and it would take a few seconds for Aria to generate the list. It would be more efficient if I could reference that list without having to copy and paste it into another document or tab.
Fortunately, Opera’s Pinboard feature offers a solution. By creating a Pinboard for a specific category, such as “Aria Chats” or “Book Research,” and pinning the Aria chat to the Pinboard, I can easily reference the chat later.
To save an Aria Chat to a Pinboard, you’ll need an up-to-date version of the Opera browser connected to a free Opera account. Both Aria and Pinboard are available for Linux, MacOS, and Windows versions of the browser.
To create a new Pinboard, click the Pinboards icon in your toolbar or on the Sidebar. In the resulting window, click the “+” button in the upper left corner and name the Pinboard “Aria Chats” (or any other desired name). You can create as many Pinboards as you need.
Open Aria by clicking its icon in the Opera sidebar and type your prompt, such as “List 100 classical composer names.” Wait for the results, and when the chat completes, you’ll see a Pinboard icon near the bottom right corner. Click that icon, and a popup will appear. In the popup, click “New pinboard,” and the window will change, allowing you to select which Pinboard to add the chat to.
Once you’ve selected the Pinboard, the chat will be added, and you can open the Pinboard to view it at any time. This allows you to retain information from an Aria AI chat without having to rerun the same chats repeatedly.
In conclusion, Opera’s Aria and Pinboard features offer a convenient workflow for saving and referencing Aria chats. By utilizing Pinboards, you can work more efficiently and easily access information from previous chats.
