Opera Software

Opera Neon, released in January, is an experimental browser that envisions the future of web browsers, similar to the way concept cars predict the future of automobiles. One of its novelties is the ability to seamlessly hop between discovering new content and chatting with friends, or even share online discoveries while browsing.

Inspired by Neon, we decided to bring those seamless transitions between chat and discoveries to the Opera browser. The result is Opera Reborn, complete with integrated popular messengers so you can keep chatting with friends without skipping a beat.

It's great to see Opera back to making interesting browsers, even if the features specified aren't exactly my thing.

They openly made fun of desktop Linux users, shed all of their assets and employees, and now taunt a new theme/icon pack and messenger integration (also known as needless attack vector) as a reborn browser.

Desktop Linux's 3% market share is probably an order of magnitude larger than Opera browser's market share now.

Their best asset post-Presto was FastMail. They threatened to sell that to Facebook until the FastMail employees decided it was enough and bought it all back from Opera.

Opera post-Presto is Nokia post-Symbian.

Let them die.
