Opera Software has revealed the first phase of Project Featherweight. What this project entails is to make Opera as user friendly, bright, and light as possible whilst not sacrificing flexibility or power.
We want the user interface to match the speed of our rendering engine. - Jan Henrik Helmers from Opera User Experience and Graphics (UxG)
Featherweight has been kept a secret up until now so that it may be presented as a comprehensive solution as opposed to bits and pieces being shown at a time. Changes such as those to the address bar and the status bar are quite visible, but the whole skin was reworked and this includes a brand new icon set. Going by Opera, this is the first step in project Featherweight, and a significant collaborative effort between the Desktop and UxG teams.
