With the recent departure from Opera Software, David took some time to share his personal thoughts regarding the situation in the company and its products.
Some of the key aspects in the article are:
- Stop adding new features and polish Opera desktop instead.
- Make the bug tracker public.
- Build Opera Widgets into a real platform or drop it.
- Scrap Opera Unite in its present form.
- Invest more in the developer tools.
- Focus on consumer products instead of selling custom solutions to partners, which requires custom work for both Core and platform code. According to David, this is what Opera is doing right now.

It seems that Dragonfly is not yet dead. 4 months after releasing the initial stable build of Opera Dragonfly, it has now been updated to the version 1.1.
In the official post, David Storey wrote, “around 3 and a half months ago we launched version 1.0″, which is not actually true as Opera Dragonfly 1.0 was releases on May 4th and that was 4 months ago. While that’s nitpicking, it looks like even its developers are ashamed of the release cycle train wreck that Opera Dragonfly had.
Furthermore, David Storey, a guy who is responsible for the Opera Dragonfly development, has announced that he will be leaving the company, right after 1.1 release.
