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.

I too was thinking, 'too bad.' But one of the biggest criticisms of Opera is that it doesn't always render EVERY page correctly. If they're using Webkit, it should effectively render every page on earth that Webkit does. Maybe that's an improvement in the opinion of Opera's developers.

Secondly, maybe the rendering engine part of a browser is commodified now. Opera's still my main browser and they're still innovating, so let's see what they can do.
