Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

Opera Software on Tuesday shipped version 7.0 for Windows of their Web browser, with a caveat that carries significant implications for CSS standards support.

c|net published a story on Monday which quotes Opera’s CEO as saying:

“ ‘ We have contacted Apple and asked them if they want a third-party browser, and we’ll see what the answer is… They could say we want to use Opera as the core engine. If they want KHTML as a simple little browser, and also something more advanced, we would be happy to provide it. Obviously, if we don’t get any positive signs from Apple, then we have to think about it. ’ ”

The upshot is that Opera Software may well discontinue support for the Macintosh.
