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 nothing terrifying about the W3C. They are basically the only true guarantee that the web stays open.


They are basically the only guarantee that it'll take 10+ years for standards to get ratified, and browser makers will keep putting custom shit into their browsers while the W3C keeps dragging its feet.

10+ years? What are you talking about?

The fact is that doing it right takes more than a few months.

According to Wikipedia, they started work on HTML5 in 2004. They hope to have a final draft by 2014. Not that I'm really impatient, but 10 years? Geez.
