I think we can now safely say Opera, the browser maker, is no more. My opinions about the acquisition of the browser by a chinese trust were recently confirmed and people are let go or fleeing en masse. Rest in Peace Opera, you brought good, very good things to the Web and we'll miss you.

In fact, I'd love to see two things appear:

  • Vivaldi is of course the new Opera, it was clear from day 1. Even the name was chosen for that. The transformation will be completed the day Vivaldi joins W3C and sends representatives to the Standardization tables.
  • Vivaldi and Brave should join forces, in my humble opinion.
