Rumor: Opera 14 Desktop Coming Next MonthNo version 13.

Now here is something that should be taken with a huge amounts of salt, in fact, so much salt that you can get kidney stones.

Recently, we have received an anonymous tip that the very first public build of Opera 14 (with WebKit rendering engine) will be revealed next month, April that is.

On a side note, it looks like at least one of the Opera employees is already playing with the latest build as he recently tweeted:

Mucking around with Opera 14 desktop, seeing if I can select link text (much required, it seems

And one more thing, it looks like Opera is yet to decide on what to implement and what to leave behind:

The feature set for unreleased products is still undecided.

And now we wait.

    Surely it is huge task to replace engine, and keep all the features. I just hope Dev succeed in keeping the features that defines Opera.

      Yes, because main reason of switching of browser engine is in mobile market. Mobile Opera is 4-5 times more popular as desktop Opera and they can not expand on mobile with Presto because popular mobile platforms have strict restrictions for browsers.
