While Jolla is still to remove the curtains of its debut Sailfish OS, there are like hundreds of “backstage making-of” interviews going on and on. But what is more amusing about Sailfish is that every time we get to see a new video, the fans figure out a new element that has been added to the system. This time, it’s Opera Mobile.
While it has already been made clear by Jolla CEO Mark Dillon during the Slush Event that Opera is their partner, then one can expect Opera Mobile to be a part of Sailfish. But that’s not the hot cake for the day. It is the news that Opera has switched from its old and reliable Presto engine to WebKit. Yes, we all know what Opera has does but all were wondering why? Maybe we’ve got the answer for you. It’s just a guess but with a reason. Now, that Jolla and Opera are partners and Jolla is doing very well as far as their part is concerned, so there might be a possibility that Jolla asked Opera to switch to Webkit because similar to Sailfish, WebKit is also an open-source product in contrast to Presto, which is close sourced. Also to notice is the colour of the new Opera logo which was red before but now has turned to blue, with WebKit icon bearing the same colour almost at its entire length.
I am still saying that it’s just a guess, but there is a large possibility for it to be true. So, tell me what’s your take on this? Don’t forget to leave your suggestions at the bottom.
