Opera Software Jon S. von Tetzchner has been with Opera for a long time - in fact, he co-founded the browser maker back in 1995, and led the company to great success; the desktop version may play a niche role, the various mobile versions surely do not. Today though, he has announced he will be leaving the company due to differences with the board and management.

I hope Opera's new direction will be more interesting than it was the last few years. Firefox, Safari and Chrome all passed it in market share almost as soon as they were released.

The only interesting things I could expect from them now would be either selling the company, closing the company, ending their desktop browser to focus on their embedded/mobile browser, open sourcing Presto, or adopting Webkit.
