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.

RE[5]: Sad, but understandable

Member since:

so you just proved my point in why they need to be investigated. do you think if MSFT made IE 11 the ONLY browser that would run on win 9 that there wouldn't be an investigation? So why does Apple get a pass when they are influencing the markets no differently than MSFT would in the same sitch?

Again if anybody doesn't think Apple has undue influence all they have to do is look at HTML V5, before Apple said "we will ONLY allow H.264" the standard clearly called for an open codec as the baseline so that ALL could watch videos without tollbooths. Apple comes along and says "You'll do what we say or it won't work on iPhone/ipad" and there goes Theora and open codecs for a patent troll which both Apple and MSFT have a stake in.

seriously what more proof do you need? if it were MSFT doing the exact same thing wouldn't everyone be calling foul?
