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.

That's assuming that Apple cares about web apps.


How quickly people forget.

When the iPhone first came out, there was no app store and Apple was pushing developers to make web apps for the platform.

Developers and the media raised a stink until Apple developed an SDK and built the app store.

That's in the past; I think it's safe to assume Apple prefers now to push usage of their appstore over webapps.
