Opera Software This is actually pretty big news - both exciting and tragic at the same time. Opera has revealed Opera Ice, its next mobile browser, to PocketLint. This new browser represent a big shift in both user interface as well as rendering engine, since it has a new, unique interface, as well as a new rendering engine... New to Opera, that is, as it's a WebKit-browser.

Good point.

I also note that among the many quotes in the article, not a single one is about Webkit. Nor is the video.

I've used Opera for over a decade; it rescued me from the constant BSOD hell I was experiencing on Windows 98 (!) when using IE.

The idea that this innovator will become just another shell on top of someone else's rendering engine saddens me... if it turns out to be true.
