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.

Why would you leave your 20 year investment in your own technology behind and switch to something that will provide no competitive angles to the competition?

It is *not* free to switch, you will have to relearn the technology and reprogram all that you have invented previously, like Opera Mail, Unite.

I still don't see it. Unless they are only switching the rendering engine? Still a lot of work, still a lot of reprogramming...
