Opera Next

Chrome for people who don't like Chrome

Opera have released their newest browser to the world, which is the first to do away with the old and dying Presto engine and embrace WebKit, the Chrome engine.

Called ‘Opera Next’ (version 15), this newest edition to the great browser wars feels like it could almost be called home, but certainty not yet, for there are a few things missing. Namely any sign of bookmarks and the ability customised the default loading screen. Opera have mentioned this is a work in progress, so perhaps the future releases will give us a fully functional browser, but it certainly looks like they want to take things in their own direction, so I’m keen to see what the next few releases will churn out.

But right now, I’ll stick to Chrome.
