License Opera with Presto engine and keep developing

  • Would it be crazy idea to keep developing old 12.xx version of Opera with Presto engine and make it licensed software? Personally I would really like to spend few dollars/euros for Opera License and have previous memory sparing, fast functionality.
    Keep version 15 with Webkit free for masses, but for those who really need performance of old Opera keep old one though paid.
    There is currently no alternative for performance of 12.16, not IE, Firefox or new Opera can provide such low memory needs as Opera with Presto and possibility to use and keep so many tabs open.

  • It won't happen. The Presto team was disbanded, and some left Opera to work elsewhere. Just keep using Opera 12.16 as long as it suits you.

    I was shocked recently when driving from Mountain View to San Francisco Airport when I spotted building with Opera's sign on top. So fact is that Opera is already present in Silicone Valley. I was still thinking that it is Norwegian company, but evidently it isn't true anymore.
    This is fate of of Nokia as through copy machine.

    If you're driving in the Oslo or Lysaker, Norway, areas, you may come across offices with the Microsoft logo on them. That hardly means Microsoft is no longer an American company.

    Indeed... Opera is considerably more successful than many of its naysayers here on these forums would have you believe. It's expanding its business. Good stuff.

    It seems that the Norwegians are turning Silicon Valley to rubber. Flexible is better than brittle. Soon computer circuits may indeed be printed on plastics.
