    Too little, too late Opera.

    Otter is advancing well, and it looks like my hack will actually work too. Once there's a free software replacement with equivalent functionality, that's the final nail for any proprietary product.

    Indeed. It might be that BBC iplayer doesn't work - but that's only available in the UK so it's irrelevant anyway. I've yet to encounter a video website that doesn't work with HTML5.

    I haven't installed it for more than a year, and I still haven't found a single website that breaks. Video streaming works out of the box, audio streaming works out of the box, 3d graphics work out of the box - no reason left to use flash anymore. Really happy I don't have to use that buggy, insecure POS anymore.

    The problem is not the support for PPAPI, but if Adobe will release a redistributable package with Flash PPAPI like they do with Flash NPAPI..
    adobe are working with opera to make flash available for opera. They didn't say if it will be in an installer or if it will be included in the browser like what chrome does. This was announced a few days ago.

    they are also adding support for PPAPI so you will be able to use flash 14 too like you can with chrome.

There are a couple things here and there that opera did that FF doesn't, but they're not important enough for me to care. Not that the new opera supports those features anyway...
    +1. Even Chromium has more features than Opera Chromium-based. I used Opera for 8 years, but I switched to Chromium (also tried Firefox, SeaMonkey, rekonq, QupZilla) after Opera 12.

    It emulates the ubuntu interface, so it doesn't intergrate very nicely with anything other than the default ubuntu theme. I seriously don't see why anyone would be using this browser nowadays.

    One year without support is simply too long, and closed-source browsers are no longer relevant. Bye bye, Opera.
    Exactly. Also, FF for Android is quite nice (adblock, lastpass, etc. plugin support), and having everything sync across phone/tablet/desktop is a plus.

    chromium outperforms firefox on all terms: speed, audio video codecs, appearance. it lacks only some plucins like youtube downloader.

    Opera is proprietary

    Their vision for an open world?
    Then why is their browser closed?

    Opera can take their proprietary software and shove it!

    I rather use Firefox or Chromium which are free open source software!
