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.

I do this for a living, I mainly still work on the now not so cool "desktop website" for a major gaming company in UK. Though my title is front end I spent most of my time re-factoring and adding new features to a large C# codebase. For the most part I enjoy my job.

We are adding in some touch functionality, but we have bigger problems at the moment which are more to do with version control and fragmentation.

I am constantly frustrated though that people think that because something is open source that there immediately isn't a problem.

For those that are using a browser it is fine and I enjoy using the newest Firefox. For those developing it is a different story and tbh I think in a worse state (mainly due to it being transitional).
