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

New Opera looks like an end of an old era.

I've used Opera back in version 4-5 days. This just feels like an old engineering veteran is being recruited in a businessman position for a company founded by some 12-year old kid, whos dad was the owner of a TV station, so he could promote the kid over the whole country.

It's not a country for old men. It's just sad.
