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.

and if you would have bothered to read the BSOD you would have noticed that the culprit was not windows but some 3rd-party driver (most likely graphics)

1. Thanks for the helpful observation.
2. Is that why the BSODs stopped when I changed browsers?

maybe one browser used hardware-acceleration, and the other didn't

just because because both display the same thing doesn't mean the use the same methods

but we will never know what was the problem with your pc because you ignored what the BSOD was telling you...
