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.

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.

They did not start work on HTML5 in 2004. They presented Web Forms in 2004, which was to become part of HTML5. And even after it was merged into HTML5, they kept adding stuff to the spec.

In other words, it has not taken 10 years to finish HTML5. Parts of it are already done, and other things were added later.
