Presto (layout engine)
From Seo Wiki - Search Engine Optimization and Programming Languages
In early 2009 Opera presented the next step, Carakan, which will be used in future versions of Opera. It features register-based bytecode, native code generation, automatic object classification and overall performance improvements.. Early access in the Opera 10.50 pre-alpha showed that it's as fast as the fastest competitors, being the winner in 2 out of the 3 most used benchmarks, though it remains to be seen what the performance of the final version is.
