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.

No be both Apple and Google have enough money in the coffers to develop two incompatible forks.

What are you talking about? How would it help Apple if Google forked WebKit? We're talking about a situation where Apple stops caring, remember.
