Opera bringing new 'Ice' browser to iOS, Android next month
After 19 years, the alternative browser known as Opera has capitulated and will move to the WebKit core used by most other browsers for their latest mobile offering, known as "Ice." The new browser, which will likely debut for iOS and Android at the upcoming Mobile World Congress next month, features an overhauled design that emphasizes simplicity and gestures over buttons.
