    No we won’t. Opera 15 launched July 2nd, it isn’t part of Q2.

      Opera Mobile 14 was released about month before Opera 15 and it is Q2

        I know it, but pay attention to my quote… “especially on desktop. Well, today we have the answer.”

        Actually this is an argument in favor of Opera 15 (for Android) as the User Growth on Android devices looks quite good.

      You are right, considering the report was out in August, I assumed that their fiscal year is different

      Sadly youre right, and the Consumer chart says: “Desktop users… below expectations”.

      But the new branch is mostly that… new, therefore inmature, by this time next year Opera 23 will portray a very different picture.

  • yoyo

    Well I Just hope web pages do not advance fast so I can Opera 12.15 for long time.

    • cobrazombie

      Word. Opera 15 is a shell of the real Opera browser. Sure, they’ll add in features again later — but which features, and what will be left out?

  • RingMyDingDong

    I have a bad feeling Opera will abandon Opera Desktop in the future…

    just take a visit at Opera forum, nobody seems to like Opera 15, 17

    • sato

      actually: I do like Opera 15. Not for my personal daily use (still 12.15 because of tab stacking), but it’s the first opera version i can recomment to “normal” (non-hardcore) users.

      Opera 16 will bring some much-needed features back, I especially welcome having duckduckgo as a search engine again.

      All in all: the switch to blink was a little late, Opera ought have switched to webkit with version 10… but better late then never!

      (i used to have Opera Mail/M2 for my mails for 5 years but I really got used to thunderbird quite fast. Didn’t imagine that could happen ;-P).

      Why would Opera abandon a profitable product? Even if it only has 50M users, those users are highly profitable (unlike say, Opera Mini). It’s basically free money.

    I’m glad they’re doing good, they don’t even need the desktop users.
