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.

I think HTML5 was a joint effort from the start. No one person or company can be credited for it. Even Ian Hickson, the guy who is often credited for it's creation, seems to confirm this:

You're wrong. Netcaptor was indeed the first browser with Tabs. Also, David Hyatt, the guy who implemented Mozilla's tabs, said he got it from the MultiZilla extension who had basically cloned NetCaptor.

Nope. It started at Opera. It wasn't called HTML5 then, and the scope was smaller. But it started at Opera, and Mozilla joined shortly after.

Nope. InternetWorks had tabs before Netcaptor.

What's your source on the HTML5 thing and the InternetWorks thing? This is really all besides the point because we're still essentially talking about influencing other Web Browsers. Not the Web. The Web is only influenced by Web Browsers with significant market share.
