"After I quit as CEO in early 2010, there were no new hires in that department," he says. "From that day, the focus was reduced. And soon Opera was struggling to keep pace. To compete with companies like Google, Apple and Mozzilla you have to be on your toes and have to focus on the best possible products in the market."

"At Opera we had a slogan that if somebody was better than us, it was a bug. Then the attitude became: if we're not the best let's see if we can do something about that, as long as it doesn't cost too much money."

"Clearly that changes the mentality of the company. It's always looking at the next quarter."

It was sad to see the Presto engine go. I'm desperately hanging on to the last version of Opera that used that.

I really don't get this new Vivaldi community that he's pushing now. Do we really need another portal to put a blog and e-mail?

Dito! In a lot of ways Opera 12.16 features are better than Firefox 28.

I remember when Opera charged $40 & it fit on 1 or 3 floppy disks!

I'm going to pass on Opera 'oogle. If I let a chrome based browser on my system it will be Comodo Dragon Browser [comodo.com]
