After revealing Opera Ice, a WebKit based mobile web browser for Android and iOS, Opera Software today announced its plans migrate “most” of its upcoming browsers for smartphones and PC’s.
Håkon Wium Lie, the says CTO of Opera Software said, “It makes more sense to have our experts working with the open source communities to further improve WebKit and Chromium, rather than developing our own rendering engine further. Opera will contribute to the WebKit and Chromium projects, and we have already submitted our first set of patches: to improve multi-column layout.”
We expect more details, at least about its ICE web browser, in the coming weeks.
