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 can't really think of any missing features. MDI is working fine here.

You obviously don't use it as MDI is still a mess in 11.5. Cascading of tabs doesn't work, restored tabs become tiny little windows, tabs open in the background are hidden if any other tabs are minimised. There are loads of little problems that add together to make it barely usable.

You don't need it in opera:config, since you can just add an extension to disable it now.

So because Opera didn't allow this to be customised someone else had to make an extension to do the job (unfortunately it seems to have some glitches and compatibility issues). That hardly makes the point that Opera's developers are still dedicated to creating a highly customisable browser. In the past this kind of thing would have been a user choice without needing outside extensions to be installed.
