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.

Wow, so there's an apparent JS problem in a browser. So what? What does this have to do with anything?

WebGL isn't even finished, HWA was disabled by default, and now we know why. They decided to switch to WebKit instead.

Mails get scrambled after a crash? No they don't. They work fine after a crash.

But what you are doing now is just to desperately try to change the subject by linking to random stuff. Anyone can link to random bugs in any browser.

Not just that random, like the mail crash, because they are experienced by various users for say... 8 years now ?

WebGL was hyper hyped by Opera as being the first browser to implement it, but it appears it doesn't work that well beside their internal demo ?

Javascript is buggy, you can forgive Opera but go thermonuclear on this if ever IE fails that bad ?

Come on, stop being an Opera fanboy, they tried to add features, that great, but the Opera browser became more and more tricky and buggy. Since 12 it even crash more and more.

Vote me down at please, it will not correct Opera's flaws anyway.

"The mail crash"? You are making this silly assumption about one single mail crash, and that's just weird. No one else seems to be having this problem, and I've used the mail client heavily on multiple computers.

Where did Opera hype WebGL, and how is that relevant to anything?

JavaScript is no buggier than other browsers, dear child.

Come on, stop trolling. You are just making up stuff as you go along.
