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.

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


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.

Actually, IE6 implemented a whole load of non-standard extensions.

IE8 was not ahead of Firefox, as far as I can recall.
