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

Yes, I don't have any other option than to look at this in this way ;)

Also I kind of hoped that all they change is the rendering engine, and the rest will stay as before. It seems that it's not possible to just "replace" the viewing widget and leave the rest.

That said, I'll probably stay interested in what Opera will offer and I will be checking out their new versions of Chrome distribution.
