I just stumbled upon this ten year old page showing Opera in it’s very early days (version 1.0) while it was still named MultiTorg Opera, running on Windows 3.11. Their browser has greatly evolved since then, but the main goal has remained the same: “The aim was to make a lean program that works fast and supports standards without introducing proprietary extensions.“, “The user should never have to sit and wait unecessarily.“, “Lean, mean, full control“. In a world that changes so fast, it is amazing to witness someone stick to their initial ideas for so long. With a reason.
