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.

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."

This is complete and utter nonsense. Extensions alone opens a new world of customization possibilities.

There's nothing wrong with eye candy, and Opera is as power user friendly as it has always been.

If you think making these changes is new to Opera, you are obviously an Opera noob. Have you any idea how frequently and massively Opera has changed through the years? Obviously not.
