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.

+1 to your entire post except that I stuck with 10.63 because I hate the (reportedly Chrome-like) behavior where pinned tabs (oh, "locked tabs" as Opera now calls them) lose their title, shrink to the favicon and are shifted to the left side of the tab bar. And, with 10.63, I have exactly the same look and feel (including shortcuts) that I had in version 7 or 8.

But yes, what you said is true, especially this: "They've definitely moved away from offering a highly customisable "power user" browser in favour of eye-candy and flashy gimmicks."
