Read yesterday that Berlusconi is planning on selling Milan soccer team to the Chinese...

Let's paint the world "red"!

It was close, they just managed to get enough shares;

90.6 percent accepted the offer - they needed 90 percent. The takeover still needs to be approved by the relevant authorities, which should happen sometime in June, I think. So see what happens next.

Replied to your pm, danielson. Dunno if you got it? ... but anyway, thanks. Just been very busy lately

It will surely give a boost to Opera team and who knows, perhaps with some eventual Chinese geeks, we might see a variety of interesting innovations.

Yes Deya, did receive in duplicate you kind response. It's good to know that you are okay. Was just short of opening a thread...

Ha! ... duplicate replies Never can quite get the hang of pm'ing but never mind.

On the buyout, I wonder how many will stop using Opera now? Qihoo being involved will doubtless raise a few eyebrows. I've read comments from Opera employees saying that if the buyout goes ahead nothing will change, and it would be nice if that were to be the case, but experience tells me that company takeovers generally don't end well, after a time, for many employees of the bought out company - especially ones involving huge sums of money.

Who knows? I think perhaps that it's Opera mobile and advertising that interests them the most, Opera Mediaworks etc. Maybe the desktop browser will be allowed to continue development without too much change and, like you say, even get a boost. Many users will take some convincing about the privacy aspect though, that's for sure.

Although Opera is far from being my default (mostly use Slimjet or Firefox)...
Must give credit to its "turbo mode" here, today.
Last Sunday, was trying all morning to access a specific site.
Nothing worked (tried Chrome, Slimjet, Opera and Firefox).
Then, early afternoon, i put Opera in "turbo mode" to see and it worked!
Things have gone back to normal since but Opera saved the day!
Doesn't mean it will become my default.
Just wanted to give a well-deserved kudos to Opera!

Turbo's a useful thing to have around sometimes, especially if your ISP blocks certain sites like they do here.

Opera Stable 37.0.2178.54 update;

My hunch is they did something similar here 'cause of the Memorial long weekend and school year closing off. Hence, an exponential increase of users playing games online or whatever else consumes bandwidth that servers could not handle.

No VPN, contrary to a comment on the link above. Unless he meant the paying one. There was supposed to be a free proxy in private mode too. Not this time , so it seems.
