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.

How can it be legal that Apple only allows WebKit and no Nitro on iOS?

Microsoft got a stiff fine from European authorities for far less :-?

Apple is not a conviced monopolist. Microsoft got a fine by being far worse than Apple is. Educate yourself, young man.

Apart from being incredibly rude, your comment denotes a huge lack of law and real-world knowledge: you do not need to be a convicted monopolist to be doing something illegal.

Problem is this would be a long and very expensive trial and nobody wants to be in bad terms with Apple for the future.
