Seeing Opera first dump its amazing killer feature (Opera Unite), and then dumb their core engine, is a really sad sight. I declare Opera (the company) as dead as Nokia.
If Unite had been such a killer feature, it wouldn't have been dumped. Evidently, hardly anyone actually ended up using Unite once the hype died down.
Declaring Opera as dead as Nokia is weird to say the least. Nokia ditched their dying platform for a dead platform (Windows Phone still doesn't sell!). Opera is ditching their platform which is still growing (Presto browsers reached 300 million active users this month) for one of the most successful and recognized browser engines on the planet.
How you can even begin to compare Opera to Nokia is beyond me.
How you can even claim that Unite was an "amazing killer feature" is also beyond me.
I guess you know how silly it is, and that's why you are posting as an AC.
