Now here is a question for those with much sharper eyes: are these Opera Software employees? If so, they do seem quite happy.

    First observation: Taken on a Nokia Lumia. That’s a Windows Phone. Is it an Opera port to Windows Phone?
    Second observation: the date is January 17th. This was nearly a month ago.

      We just found it! :) If it’s indeed from Opera’s office, my speculation is: Nokia gave them Lumias’ to develop a browser port for Windows Phone.

      Unlikely. Windows Phone doesn’t support anything but IE. Microsoft don’t allow it.

      Also, Windows Phone marketshare is dropping year on year, it’s lower than last year, despite new (underperforming) products.

      Consumers have spoken, and it’s iOS and Android only…

        From Mozilla:

        “Microsoft would need to release a Native Development Kit for Windows Phone and allow GPL licensed applications on the market. Both of these are blockers for Firefox being released for Windows Phone.”

          Opera would also fail at the NDK point, and Microsoft have already stated, IE or nothing….

        That was the case with WP7 as the APIs were limited, not with WP8 as far as I know,

        > Also, Windows Phone marketshare is dropping year on year, it’s lower than last year, despite new (underperforming) products.

        It’s growing, in some regions it has surpassed 5-10%, Russia, Italy and Finland.

    How to instantly crash opera: go to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/technology/ and however the cursor over the CSS Animations section a few times. BOOM!

      Didn’t do it for me.

        You have to hover and pause the cursor over the CSS Animations section a few times.

    No, that is not Opera employees nor does it look like it’s from any of the Opera offices.

    The purge has begun, soon Opera is nothing more than a Chromium reskin and Apple and Google will not accept Opera’s patches to Webkit
