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.

There's IE engine. Dolphin browser currently also features custom engine (that is faster than anything else anyway)

For what it is worth Netsurf is maturing. Has lots of rendering backends for different operating systems and is starting to grow javascript support. Its also more modular than any of the alternatives from what I can tell.

It used to be about on par with dillo but now there is alot more CSS support and from what I understand DOM support is being improved alot.

As far as dillo it is pretty stagnant... considering one person forked it and made a way better version in a few months im not impressed with the current main developers. DPlus (the fork) is nice on very old hardware and for speed. The biggest change for me being that it doesn't leave background processes like dillo if and when it crashes.
