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.

Jon: Why do you want to do this to my browser? That's evil!

Board: Sorry, Jon. This is the way it's always been doneā„¢

Jon: Since when? I am the freaking founder!

Board: Since the release of Chrome, Jon.

This doesn't even begin to make sense. What does Chrome have to do with anything?

Are you saying that Jon didn't want Opera to succeed?
