  1. Presto

    Presto is the purpose-built layout engine of the Opera web browser for a decade. It was released on 28 January 2003 in Opera 7, for Windows, after several public betas and technical previews. It remained in use until Opera 12.15, when the browser's developer Opera Software ASA began phasing Presto out of its products in favor of the WebKit layout engine and V8 JavaScript engine combined with a modified Chromium browser. Presto is a dynamic engine. Webpages could be re-rendered completely or partially in response to DOM events. Its releases saw a number of bug fixes and optimizations to improve the speed of the ECMAScript engine. It is proprietary software only available as a part of the Opera browsers.
