Tune in tomorrow when Opera switches to Trident.
It looks like Apple is about to lose a yet another contributor, at least in the long term. After Google’s announcement that they will be moving away from WebKit, Opera Software announced that they too will contribute and use Blink to power their web browsers.
According to Opera’s Bruce Lawson, “a lot of people were worried that there would be less diversity on the Web once Opera Presto was retired, and the forking of WebKit into Blink restores that balance.”.
Guess we will have to wait and see but as far as user experience goes, anything is better than Presto.
Update: Looks like Opera knew about Blink all along.
