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.

You obviously haven't heard of the WHATWG then?

Companies do collaborate when it suits their needs i.e. why the WHATWG exists and other organisations that have several companies funding them.

So was Microsoft cooperating with the rest when it was so dominant it could basically block other browsers?

Nope.

The WHATWG ended up going to the W3C. Funny, that.

Actually browsers like IE6 was actually built on a draft standard that was later changed.

Standards that people actually use, IE8 was actually ahead of Firefox, pity the usability sucked.
