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.

Unfortunately, a lot of my favourite Opera UI features have been broken, with options I've used since the days of Opera 3 or 4 not working correctly. I've tried the latest version and it still has a number of annoying UI bugs that were reported years ago. To me recent versions of Opera don't even come close to matching the browser it used to be.


Yeah, they broke text-to-speech in the Windows version sometime in the 9.x branch, and ignored posts on their forums about it. I sent a bug report and waited a couple of versions for it to get fixed, and then just gave up on it. I have never gone back. Fuck Opera ;)
