My Opera & Email Is Shutting DownNow here’s a Halloween surprise for you.

Today, Opera has announced that they will be shutting down My Opera platform on March 1, 2014, which means that you have 4 months to export your blog and / or save all the data.

In addition to that, My Opera Email will too be discontinued so you should start looking for a new (and reliable) provider as soon as possible, such as Gmail or Outlook.

On a positive note, Opera Link content will still be accessible via link.opera.com and forums will be migrated to www.opera.com so not all news are bad.

In the meantime, head over to the following post and learn more about exporting your data.

    Did you ever noticed that they made this announcement on a week there hasn’t been a launching of any version? Last launching was on 2013/10/24 and there isn’t anything new until today, 2013/11/04.

    Too strange it was just a coincidence …

      Because a barely used email service goes away?

    I was not happy about this at all. Finally moved pretty much every service I use from my opera mail to gmail.
