Thankfully, since it isn't Chrome, I'm assuming no.

Found that project today and installed it on Arch from AUR.

Since Opera probably won't released for Linux anymore according to this blog, this project seems to be a useful approach to all former Opera addicted users. Otter is still alpha status, but it looks & feels good to use so far.

I've tried Chrome, Chromium and Iron several times but never got warm with it. Firefox is great but can't beat Opera in usabilty aspects. I hope this project will be a success.

Good to hear. Personally I never experienced the "wow" factor that made Opera popular. But I think by the time I really started to use it, it had already become undesirable. I'm mainly just hoping its a decent browser in its own right.
