    Desktop will stay. Synchronize on all devices – this cannot be removed as mobile feature :) And 14m is still more than I do :)

    The Opera desktop browser will be there for many more years, hopefully, but I think it is really very unlikely that it will die within the next few years.
    Having a somewhat competitive desktop browser is very valueable as a sync-compagnion for mobile users and it is not sooo expensive when needing to have the knowledge and skill to develop a browser anyway (for mobile browsers, TV browsers etc.).
    Also as a heavy and long-time (since Opera 9) Opera desktop user I think the current way the desktop browser goes is just the start of what they have planned and while it won’t necessarily fit the needs of power-users like me it has great potential for future growth :-)

      One of the more publicized feature in which they spent more time had been Bookmarks … bookmarks… that thing considered obsolete and without any sense nowadays when they released O15 …

      The “awesome and innovative” Stash feature has been removed…

      yes, they work exactly as planned O_o … but forgive me if I think they have no idea of what to do and change their plans every day

  3. Not surprising at all, at the sight of all the stupid decisions.

    Opera is better than chrome at the moment in my opinion – I would be sad if it was abandoned.
