New Company Owns Opera

  • A new company now owns Opera. A large Chinese consortium made up of several companies including Qihoo 360. The Qihoo 360 people are notorious for having their software eat up with large aggressive invasive ads. I will be very surprised if Opera does not soon go down this path. And they have an absolute deaf ear when it comes to listening to users or implementing any suggestion that they make. Any negative reviews of their applications quickly disappear and more than one person has suspected that many of their 5 Star reviews are planted there by the company itself. The CEO of the old company that ran Opera is staying on but I'm sure he will do what his bosses tell him to do so Opera may have seen the best of times and the worst may lie ahead. It's a shame because in the not too recent past it was really something. It would be nice to know what others think of this recent buyout and also it would be great if someone from the company would make a statement as to be considered direction for the future development of the software.
