Opera moving to webkit

Recommended Posts

bit of a pity, I liked the fact it was a different engine to IE & FF.

the few times a tried it, I never though it was slow.

The problem with opera never was speed it was the fact that it didn't render pages the same as other browsers. I always thought certain pages didn't work right with opera(a lot of times had to due with drop down boxes on shopping sites, ect.)

I had stopped using it many years ago (maybe 10 years) because it would refuse to load some sites, and after trying numerous versions for several years I completely gave up on it.

Same here. I used to love Opera but its developers were so stubborn to fix certain pages that would load just fine under everything else but Opera. And then I fell in love with Firefox extensions. So I made the switch time ago and never looked back.

So interesting follow-ups

I believe opera is doing this so they can keep 1-code-set across all devices (PC,MAC, Linux, iOS, Android, ChromeOS,Windowsphone8, etc) as webkit works in (and runs the main browsers for) most PhoneOS' (save mozilla's firefox-OS which I assume still runs as gecko)
