Opera releases new Chromium-powered desktop browser for Mac and Windows
Now that Opera's desktop browser is based on Chromium, having ditched its own Presto rendering engine first for WebKit and now Blink, there's a good reason for you to give it a whirl if you haven't tried it in a while.

You don't need to worry about Opera becoming a clone of something, or that you will be forced to stop using 12.x before you think we're ready. Our mission didn't change - we're going to bring you the best Internet experience. We are on the way to build the best browser out there. A browser that is not tied to the particular version number but is a continuously work in progress. Seeing your engagement I think we can count on your help and feedback.
So if something is not in Opera 15 stable - don't worry, Opera Next 16 will be released roughly same time as Opera 15 stable. And the time span between the two will be shorter than ever.
Less browser engines out there could make for a long day with regard to who sets and debugs the standards me thinks .. Bad move on the part of Opera
