Opera & Macromedia
Macromedia to Embed the Opera Browser in Web Authoring Products

 7:22 am on Jul 2, 2002 (gmt 0)

Opera is making more strategic partnerships....

Oslo, Norway -- July 2, 2002
Today, Opera Software announced an agreement with Macromedia, whereby the two companies will work together to integrate their products for the Mac platform. Opera will deliver a full-featured, embeddable version of its desktop browser to be integrated into a wide range of Macromedia Web development products.

Opera and Macromedia will work together to develop and maintain an application programming interface (API) for an embedded browser on the Mac platform, enabling further technical collaboration between the two companies in the future. Opera's core technology will be used as default browsing technology in a number of Macromedia products on the Mac platform and will give users the opportunity to test their Web pages with the world's most standards-compliant browser.

Rest here:

Interesting... Dreamweaver with default Opera preview browser perhaps? That would be big!

Certainly a boost for opera!

All they have to do now is to stop making you pay to get rid of the banner and they're laughing.

I hope they do the same for Windows.

Oh my goodness. Chalk one up for Macromedia! So now who is Adobe going to call its new best friend? What about all us designer hacks who went to the dark side... to Windows? whimper, whine, sniff

You win some , you lose some. Best bet is to use both.

OPERA and FAST are both results of a successful Norwegian software community. Not bad considering that we are only 4 mill. people here in Norway! :)

Can anyone guess what this actually means? Dreamweaver already has it's own internal HTML renderer (which doesn't match IE, NN, Opera OR Moz). It would seem to be a massive effort to insert Opera's, though there is a dire need to improve the one STILL in Dreamweaver MX (doesn't even render <sup> <sub> <small> or <big>).

Personally I'd rather see the Mozilla editor grow a decent client-side SSI parser and search-and-replace dialog, then we'd all have a FREE world-class editor for any platform.
