What happens to opera 12 and presto engine?

    Not so much their superstition as the general public, but yeah.

  • Well. I found a website where a team is developing another free browser that attempts to offer all the best features from both Opera and Firefox in one. I don't think there will be any third party plugins offered at this time. Because there won't be any need for it. What has attracted me is the fact they are going to include a personal toolbar like Opera had. But better. This one seems to be VERY user friendly. The website isn't up yet. But I'll be waiting for it. Adios Opera. You abandoned your users for some political reason. To Hell with you. The best features are gone from Opera. So I am done with it.

    Don't you just love conspiracy theories? Do some reading before ranting, and educate yourself about the reasons for the switch to the Webkit/Blink rendering engine, and their plans for the future.

    Maybe you as a dispassionate monk are blissfully oblivious of the marks and effects of PR mannerisms, so it's necessary to point out to you that doublespeak is screaming at your face in every sentence in the text that you linked to. If you don't want to fuel conspiracy theories, do not link to Orwellian texts. This particular case is especially bad as everything in it is completely demolished in different ways in the comments that immediately follow. I in turn refrain from pointing out the more expert analyses of this case. It's already a famous PR study case.

    No, it doesn't. Opera 12.10 already added SPDY (proof, or perhaps the official changelog is more to the point). Whoever wrote that is either ignorant or lying.

    The myth that Opera 15 added SPDY is by now well-spread thanks to that very blog post. Not even my tech writer friend bothered to correct his post on Opera 15 when I informally pointed out this falsity, which I find somewhat disconcerting. Orwellian is right: soon the Opera Minitrue will remove these traces of the past to which I link. One of them is scheduled to disappear on March 1, 2014. And with Disqus, the Minitrue doesn't even have to bother deleting anything, because nothing can ever be found that way. It might as well not be there at all.

    Some of us are passionate about dispassion. I prefer being passionate about the truth.

  • @imm000 - there is an errant bot on this site, an experimental AI named "Pesala" - that does provide right answers but the truth value is 100% inverted, so read them all accordingly.

    "Fixed in next release".

    :yes:
    Actually, Frenzie, that blog post is β€žcorrectβ€œ in a twisted way... It is like politicians endlessly extolling the creation of new jobs... despite the rising unemployment. Do you wonder how it is possible? Simply: it is because only the statistics for new jobs are recorded, while the statistics for lost jobs are never, ever recorded, anywhere.
    In crapitalism, negatives are always uttered in euphemistic doublespeak -- they are always "corrections" and the like...
