One of them you can see in this article, which is about Nokia trying to buy Trolltech.
The article makes it sound like Opera is based on Qt, which is not actually true.
Opera has never been based on Qt. Opera developed its own lightweight portability layer, to be able to move to all kinds of platforms, even where no cross platform toolkits are available. Opera for Linux is using Qt the same way as Opera for Windows is using Windows API:s to connect to the platform.
Opera is agnostic to platforms. devices, and toolkits. Of course individuals working for Opera likes some better than others, but when it comes down to it, we will do whatever it takes to deliver the best Internet experience on any device.
