Opera’s next big step in browsing

Opera Software will demonstrate a new browser for Android smartphones at MWC, one that replaces its proprietary Presto rendering engine with the widely used open-source WebKit engine. The company will also be using code from the open-source Chromium browser project. Shown is the existing Opera Mobile 12 for Android, which runs the full browser on the device. WebKit will be phased into the entire Opera product line. A scoop by PocketLint last month says the new browser, codenamed Ice, will hide as much of the browser technology as possible, use gestures to control navigation and actions, and focus on rich applications.
