Don’t expect an Opera Next Linux build anytime soon

It is too early to tell if Opera’s move to the Blink engine away from Presto is going to pay off in terms of overall users who use the web browser as their primary, or if the company has shot itself in the foot with it.

The company has received a lot of comments on the desktop team blog when the first Opera 15 Next version was released, with the majority of them critical of the move.

That’s somewhat understandable, considering that Opera made a full U-Turn here and published a browser that is almost the complete opposite of the original Opera browser.
