Opera Next 16 – growing up

Hi! Hopefully a few of you remember me. I was once a regular poster on the Desktop team blog and then disappeared for a bit. Well after several months paternity leave I am back and raring to go!

Whilst I was away a number of changes happened here in the office, not least the rewrite of our desktop browser. Opera 15 is a fantastic browser but it still just the very beginning of things to come.

As with small children, sometimes changes will be minor and other times there are big jumps in development. Today the changes are small but they are still baby steps towards further greatness. I hope you, like me, enjoy the journey of watching the new Opera grow and become ever better with each passing day. Thanks for the testing!
