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.

Umm... I have. I have done some custom [proof-of-concept] type projects using the Qt5WebKit codebase.

I like it just fine. But that doesn't mean that it will provide 100% of what Presto provides in a convenient way.

I would say exactly the same thing in reverse if someone were trying to take the Presto engine--which I am sure is also a good code base--and stick it into a long-term WebKit project.
