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.
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.
