The article reports on the decision of Skyhook Wireless and Opera Software to embed Skyhook's location software into Opera's browser. Embedding the software into the browser would make it easier for web surfers to obtain data from the Internet that is specific to their locations. This means that the search nearby restaurants, gas stations, or real estate offices would be much easier.
