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 has its advantages, this is the argument I used to convince to my superiors we needed to standarize the company browser to Chrome, that webkit is in every movil OS, macs, windows and Linux, and now, all I have to do is program to webkit, but, only to HTML5 not to webkit's special features, and, now with Opera running on top of webkit, we can switch from Chrome to Opera, cause I don't trust Google to be spying in our company.

This rumour isn't even about the desktop Opera, just about some new mobile browser (it's right there in the summary) ...I don't suppose you do development work on mobiles. ;p
