Opera Software De kogel is door de kerk: as we already talked about earlier, Opera is going to switch to the WebKit engine, leaving its own Presto rendering engine behind. We didn't yet know if they would the switch only on mobile or on the desktop as well, and they cleared that up too: both mobile and desktop Opera Browsers will switch to the WebKit rendering engine.

So we finally managed to move away from IE 6 to now have to fight with Webkit compatibility issues, great!

It is always an interesting experience having to explain to customers that although iPad, iPhone, Android, Chrome and Safari use Webkit, all of them use different versions, which require different hacks to make the pages consistent.
