Opera Ice: New browser for Android and iPhone coming February uses WebKit


The new Opera Ice browser will be based around hiding the technology as much as possible and embracing rich applications. It will ditch all buttons and instead use gestures to control key elements like forwards and backwards.


Apple Safari is 10 years old today


The first version of Safari was released as a public beta exactly ten years ago today. The app was designed by Apple to replace Microsoft Internet Explorer, which was the default Mac browser up to OS X 10.2.

Internet Explorer…thank goodness they changed that. Also, Google Chrome is based on WebKit, developed by Apple, so two of the four most used browsers are a result of Apple’s work.

Mozilla releases Firefox 14.

Firefox Blog:

Firefox has new features that make browsing more secure and Web applications like games more powerful.

We automatically make your Google searches secure in Firefox to protect your data from potentially prying eyes, like network administrators when you use public or shared WiFi networks. Google is currently the only search engine that allows Firefox to make your searches private, but we look forward to supporting additional search engines with this feature in the future.

Also, it now properly supports Full Screen Mode on Lion.
