Opera Software recently announced plans to shut down their My Opera community to focus on their core products.
As a result, My Opera users have been looking for a new place to meet and collaborate. There are already several options available to them to migrate their blogs and so on. But there is no proper alternative designed solely for them.
Opera founder and folder CEO Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner has launched a new project named Vivaldi to provide such a home. He said in a statement:
For me, as a co-founder of Opera, I cannot just see the community we built together being ignored and stranded like this. Therefore, some of us got together and created a place for our community, our friends, once again. As you can see, it’s still very much a work in progress. Things have happened very quickly and we have tried to be quick as well. We wanted to share this with you as soon as possible and let you all know that there will still be a place for us. We hope you like it and that you will help us improve going forward. You are what makes this community.
