Opera Software De kogel is door de kerk: as we already talked about earlier, Opera is going to switch to the WebKit engine, leaving its own Presto rendering engine behind. We didn't yet know if they would the switch only on mobile or on the desktop as well, and they cleared that up too: both mobile and desktop Opera Browsers will switch to the WebKit rendering engine.

How does this mean that Opera will be a follower? Who was following Opera? Not web developers, that's for sure!

Won't this make innovation even easier for Opera since they don't have to work on compatibility problems most of the time anymore?

They certainly have taken the first step towards making it easier for web developers. Next step is removing another browser from the web to make it easier for web developers. How web developers must long for the days when they only had to develop for one browser.
