Keeping an eye on Opera
Many are giving up Opera due to the shortcomings of the present state of the so-called "Opera Next"

This thread is to inform us on how the Opera Browser develops.

I don't know what it means, but Opera is making a gaming browser.
It means a skin, I assume. Opera Coast is a Chrome skin for Mac. Opera Touch is a browser skin for Android. Etc.

Opera ASA makes skins these, not browsers. There are better skins out there.

It actually sounds interesting, although how interesting I'm not sure. It means limiting CPU/memory.

Something like settings for accelerators and such in IE and FF? Yup, that's innovation. Fine-grained performance controls would be welcome of course, but I expect coarse, clumsy, and crippled from Opera ASA, the way its allegedly inbuilt adblocking is. And I absolutely hate that video popout thingie.
