I've never really been an Opera user either, other than trying it briefly. 
>From what I know, after many years of having their own engine, they dumped
it in favor of Google's Blink (forked from WebKit).  They seemed to have
sort of a "cult following" with many intensely loyal users, but then they
went a different direction.  And now it sounds like some of the original
Opera folks are doing this new browser.  But again, I've never really kept
up, so if you want to know the real story...  :)

I *can* highly recommend Pentadactyl.  It seems like the best of the
Vim-style extensions for Firefox, has been steadily and tirelessly updated
over the years to keep up with Mozilla's churn, and is very stable.  I
haven't been converted to EVIL yet, but I have always found Vim's modal
style very efficient for web browsing.
