@SevenCubed, Of course "more quarterly focused" has to do with finances, but it still doesn't give you any real information.
The latest version of Opera shows that it's going the other way. While other browsers like Firefox/IE/Chrome aim to load up faster, Opera takes much longer than previous versions (e.g. v10 or below). Maybe why he quit? They are making opera bloatware.
I'm not sure which version you are using, but 11.5 seems to start up faster, load pages faster, and use less memory than older versions. Where did you get the idea that it is not Opera's goal to be faster?
