Opera is busy working on its newest project, a WebKit-based mobile browser affectionately dubbed Opera Ice. As of this writing, it’s too early to determine if “Ice” is just an internal nickname or the new browser’s official moniker.
CNET is reporting that the browser is reportedly designed for the screens of today’s leading iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
The Opera Browser will be rebuilding its mobile browsers using WebKit and a new interface that nearly entirely ditches the traditional browser buttons called Opera Ice, according to a leaked video acquired by Pocket-Lint.com.
The video in question can be seen below.
With speculation mounting that this will be the most “radical redesign” of the popular browser to date, Ice is expected to debut at Mobile World Congress in February.
