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.

the engine. When it was competing with Netscape and IE5 it was particularly fast and light on resources, but that's no longer the case these days.

I feel that's still mostly the case, Opera is still lighter - particularly visible on older machines, try it on such one day (like, a decade old; or a 1st gen netbook).

It's probably one of the reasons why Opera has big usage share in CIS... (where PCs tend to be used longer)
