Opera moves to Webkit for future products

Bruce Lawson on Opera Developer News:

The WebKit project now has the kind of standards support that we could only dream of when our work began. Instead of tying up resources duplicating what's already implemented in WebKit, we can focus on innovation to make a better browser.

And their CTO Håkon Wium Lie on the [webkit-dev] mailing list:

The first contributions from our side will be in multi-column layout. We have experimented with combining multicol layout with page floats and column spans; in 10 lines of CSS code one can create amazingly beautiful, scaleable and responsive paged presentations.

This really is great news. I wish Opera every success with this.


I’m fully booked until January 2021.

Talk soon
