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

Now it's becoming a stripped down mobile browser that just happens to have a desktop version. I see no indication that this is going to change between preview and full release.

You are missing the point. They rewrite the UI from scratch. This is just the first step. They're not going to stop adding features.

Opera 15 is the foundation. It isn't becoming stripped down. It is stripped down now because it's physically impossible to add tons of features in such a short amount of time. But it will be less stripped down as it matures.
