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.

Actually, IE6 implemented a whole load of non-standard extensions.


Like every browser had at the time.

IE8 was not ahead of Firefox, as far as I can recall.


It was on XHTML and CSS 2.1, except the usability sucked.

The biggest problem that ie6 had was that MS didn't release any updates for years. You do that to any piece of software in an highly evolving enviornment like the web and it will look terrible in retrospect.

There wasn't any highly evolving environment until Firefox, there was at least 2 or 3 years.

What that has to do with IE8 I don't know.
