The Norwegians announced today Opera 15, the first release of their closed-source cross-platform web-browser that's now powered by Google's Chromium/Blink engine.

Beyond changing from their own in-house browser engine to now using what's used by Google's Chrome/Chromium, Opera 15 also has a much simpler user-interface, Speed Dial and other features have been incorporated into this revamped browser, a new Stash feature, and much more.

But for those wondering about a Linux version of Opera 15, the developers note, "We are planning to release a Chromium-based Opera for Linux, but it's not ready yet."

More details on the Opera 15 web-browser can be found via Opera.com.
