Opera Software Jon S. von Tetzchner has been with Opera for a long time - in fact, he co-founded the browser maker back in 1995, and led the company to great success; the desktop version may play a niche role, the various mobile versions surely do not. Today though, he has announced he will be leaving the company due to differences with the board and management.

Didn't JSvT fire the board or something a couple of years ago because they wanted to sell the company, and he refused to?

Maybe he's leaving as a protest because the new CEO is willing to sell the company?

That's what some comments seem to indicate.

Would be a pity...
