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.

And then do what?

You can't change the default browser on iOS. Forking WebKit won't change what Apple choose to do. It won't change what Google do. Forking WebKit achieves almost nothing as far as user-freedom is concerned in real terms.
