Opera to move to webkit/chromium rendering engines

<< < (4/7) > >>

Ah! I know of 1 thing that only Opera does... Copying a web page only copies text in Opera, and not rich text. It is useful sometimes.

Check out PureText (free) for that.

PureText doesn't do exactly that.  Opera strips out the tags.  Puretext is pasting the literal text of the page, i.e. in the case of HTML, it is the HTML source.

it was about time

So, Opera fires 90 people, basically most of the Core engineers. Even if switching to webkit, that seems... somewhat short-sighted.

What the hell, is Webkit just that effbombing awesome that it really would be cheaper to re-tool around it than continue with Core when Core has had this many years to mature?  Really?  I mean, I use Chromium as my default browser now, because for the most part is just works and stays out of my way, but the rendering isn't THAT awesome, or am I missing something?
