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.

So what if Safari is bundled with OS X? IE is bundled with Windows.

Yes, that is my point. That gives it a huge advantage when it comes to distribution.

IE has Windows, Safari has Mac, Firefox had Google, Chrome has Google. All these are huge distribution channels, and Opera doesn't have those.

Yeah some people may use the bundled browser but pretty well everyone I know does not use it unless they really have to.

Yes, but the point is that all those other browsers have major distribution channels that Opera lacks.
