Opera Software today announced that it plans to gradually transition its desktop and mobile browsers to the WebKit standard, which is same used by Apple's Safari browser and Google's Chrome browser. Opera's desktop and mobile browsers use the company's own Presto rendering engine. WebKit is a widely used standard on mobile devices. Opera is making the transition so that it can offer a competitive alternative browser for Android and iOS devices. Opera said that it will preview its WebKit-based browser on Android devices later this month, but did not commit to a timeframe for releasing new Android and iOS browsers.
