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.

Its the engine that it usually fell short on. So I look forward to it being able to innovate without having to constantly fix their javascript support.

http://blog.chromium.org/2010/03/does-your-browser-behave.html ...perhaps the js compliance of Opera engine was just "too good" in an idealistic way.

Their engine has generally some good points, large part of why Opera is light on resources for example (most noticeable on older machines; also, this surely allowed them to host Opera Mini more easily - but maybe Webkit & present server hardware are now good enough for that)
