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.

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.

Interesting that you do not even provide sources, just claim everything is ok from your own experience.

The "crash" have been experienced by various users just read the links I have provided instead to skip them, WebGL was hyped here and there :

And Javascript is buggy and hangs Opera if one tab is faulty since there is no sandboxing.

I bet you're a linux user, since when it works for you, it should works for everyone ?
