Opera Software "Countless hours of hard work, hectoliters of coffee, tons of improvements, two version numbers skipped, and here it is: the all-new Opera for desktop is now out as an Opera Next version, Opera's channel for what used to be called beta. Made from scratch, this version is available for Windows and Mac and brings a new, elegant design and a bunch of new features that will make your browsing experience sleeker and easier than ever." The first version using something called 'Chromium's engine' - I guess they can't call it WebKit anymore, but they can't call it Blink yet either. It's looking great, but the bookmark functionality seems to not have been implemented yet in this preview

Basically opera is now a skin for google's browser...

...I guess this means that even opera think ther browser was finished. How many users of browsers bother to change their browser's skin? Or even know or care what a "skin" is?

Opera's problem was that they concentrated too much on features for nerds and never advertised their browser enough... then firefox came a long - that was really the first nails going into opera's coffin.
