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.

The only interesting things I could expect from them now would be either [...] open sourcing Presto, or adopting Webkit.

I guess that by "interesting", you don't mean something that would be good for the company or the web in general.

From a geek's POV, yes, the open sourcing of Presto would be a good thing but aside from satisfying curiosity about a proprietary engine nothing (before WebKit) held a candle to, I don't see these options as "good" per se.

For the rest, I think @MacMan has it right.
