Submission + - Opera switching to WebKit rendering engine (opera.com)

Z80xxc! writes: The creators of Opera announced today that the browser now has over 300 million users — and will therefore be switching to webkit.

To provide a leading browser on Android and iOS, this year Opera will make a gradual transition to the WebKit engine, as well as Chromium, for most of its upcoming versions of browsers for smartphones and computers.

With Opera moving to webkit, there will now be only three major web rendering engines: IE's Trident, Mozilla's Gecko, and WebKit — used by Google Chrome and Apple Safari already. What will this mean for the future of compatibility and web standards?
