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.

If all the browsers are webkit, we will end up having a mono-culture like IE6 and we will have another lull in innovation yet again.

Not only that, it is already a pain that each browser has a different Webkit version.

This leads to browser specific hacks everywhere.

But so is the world of the so called "web development", code once, hack everywhere.
