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.

Yes, maybe I misunderstood you.
what FF calls "magic bar" (I mean searching from the address field)


It's called "AwesomeBar" and it works far better than the equivalent in Opera due to having a prediction component and having nifty little features like tag support and switch-to-tab among others. It also works slightly different by not having a full-text index to dig through (which I would welcome for a future Firefox version).
