[Good read] Interview with Jon S. von Tetzchner



  • I've took the liberty to discuss recent happenings and the future with Jon, and I believe you would find it interesting ;) Jon shares his views on the browser market, his time at Opera, time he decided to leave the company, what he has done since, and how did the Vivaldi launch go :) [url=https://medium.com/@burek/jon-s-von-tetzchner-we-will-re-create-a-browser-you-love-123f766386c4][b]Jon S. von Tetzchner:[/b] We will (re)create a browser you love.[/url]

    Nice interview, Ivan.



  • Very nice interview. Although Jon said something I had figured clearly in the days of the Opium announce, and even before.

    At the time Opera ASA started killing opera Unite, the torrent client and so on, was pretty obious that the power inside the company was not anymore in the hands of the founder.

    An old story already seen on many of the companies including Apple, when the Jobs forced the company to an U turn, moving from Apple II, thought mainly by Woz, to the Macs and Jobs' ideas.



  • The interview confirmed what I have maintained all along; that the shareholders forced Jon from the company. I wish him well in this new endeavor. Since he appears to be the only investor, it should be clear sailing ahead.



  • Very encouraging to read that article. I have a feeling this project will turn out well.

    @The_Solutor:

    An old story already seen on many of the companies including Apple, when the Jobs forced the company to an U turn, moving from Apple II, thought mainly by Woz, to the Macs and Jobs' ideas.

    And Jobs also didn't want his iPod to connect with Windows and only when the rest of the company forced him to give up and allow Windows connection the iPod exploded in sales.

    It always depends, Jobs did an excellent job going to the Macs, but a stupid move when not wanting cross-device connection.

    It depends on what's your definition of a good Job.



  • Yes, an excellent read.

    Wait a minute. Jon now lives in the United States? But, isn't Vivaldi based in Iceland? Oh sure, there is the Internet and all the high tech methods with which to communicate instantly worldwide now, but still. I would think Jon and the entire Vivaldi team of developers would have to work LIVE at one location for better results. Ehhh, what do I know? :lol:

    What does that have to do with browsers? Did Google Glass affect the browser market? No. Didn't think so.

    @RRR13:

    I was replying to Suntana, who said he expected Jon to be onsite and not away.
    What were you scolding me for? :lol:

    Nevermind. The comments are not annotated so as to tell a person to whom a comment is directed, so I mis-read you.
