Opera posted an article about how they make Chromium better: https://dev.opera.com/blog/reducing-memory-use/
Might be an interesting read.
Bruce Lawson? The guy who said the move to Blink would be "only under the hood" and unnoticeable to users? And who said that after layoffs they have more developers than ever? Might be an interesting read.
Anyone following my twitter account or the Vivaldi team blog has probably worked out that I have left Opera and started working for Vivaldi. If you missed the news, the short version is that Opera shutdown the Oslo office working on the desktop browser. Most people were laid off. A small handful were offered alternative jobs. Even amongst those of us who were offered a new position -- I was one of them -- several have subsequently quit of their own accord.

Ruari is now working for Vivaldi. I don't keep a close eye on Twitter or Vivaldi, so I hadn't noticed yet.
How many old Opera employees are left now?
Directors of Norwegian browser maker Opera Software said that they were considering selling the company and had hired bankers to help them explore options after the firm missed a second-quarter revenue forecast.[...]On mobile, Opera's browsers, including its Opera Mini -- which years ago was a stalwart on feature phones -- had a share of around 6%, far below either Safari on iOS (with a 42.4% share) and Google's Chrome on on Android (33.2%).
And so it ended...
It's time to say goodbye to our old friend Opera Link. In March, we introduced a new way to sync data in the latest versions of Opera for computers, Android, and iOS. The shift to our new syncing service allowed us to streamline and update the types of browsing data you can sync across your computers, phones and tablets. **Opera Link will close in December 2015.** At that time, you will no longer be able to synchronize your browsing data using the Opera Link service. Also, you will no longer be able to access your data through the Opera Link web interface at link.opera.com. December brings the end of Opera Link, but not the end of syncing your data using your favorite browser. Download the new Opera, and, depending on your devices, you can sync your bookmarks, Speed Dials, open tabs, browsing history, settings and passwords. Making the switch is easy: 1. Navigate to www.opera.com to download and install a new Opera browser. 2. Use your Opera Link username and password to sign into the new sync service, or set up a new account entirely. You can read more about how at www.opera.com/help/account#signIn. 3. After you've registered your new account, use our migration tool to move your old Opera Link bookmarks to your new browser. You can find the tool at sync.opera.com/web/. If you can not upgrade to the new browser or do not wish to, your local data will remain on your machine but will not update on the Opera Link server. We recommend that you migrate your bookmarks, so you can still access them through our new service's web interface. You can find the migration tool at sync.opera.com/web/. We hope you enjoy the updated set of syncing services offered in our newest generation of browsers. Thanks for choosing Opera,The Sync team
