Opera Software De kogel is door de kerk: as we already talked about earlier, Opera is going to switch to the WebKit engine, leaving its own Presto rendering engine behind. We didn't yet know if they would the switch only on mobile or on the desktop as well, and they cleared that up too: both mobile and desktop Opera Browsers will switch to the WebKit rendering engine.

Opera now joins the ranks of Maxthon, Avant, Comodo Dragon, Flock, K-Meleon etc. They use the Stephen Elop strategy of stopping development on the main thing that makes you special. Now they can focus on making Opera better by implementing new web technologies, improving web performance, reducing memory and cpu usage... Wait that is all in the engine!

Thanks Opera for kicking the web in the nuts. Now you can make it easier for web developers to shut out Gecko and Trident because webkit is the only rendering engine that matters. You truly are the nemesis of Mozilla.
