    One thing everyone should have learned from this morning's WWDC announcement is - never say never. :)
    With that said, I don't really know if I want another browser to jump into an already saturated pool. Then again, it could be interesting, as long as it doesn't use yet another new rendering engine.

    Actually if Google could come up with a rendering engine as good as opera's but better, and not as "holier than thou" as gecko it could be great :)

    Actually IE thinks it's "holier than thou". But that's another story. :D



    Now imagine Google coming together with Mozilla/Firefox.

    That I wouldn't mind. :D
    Wish we could have one damn standard rendering engine though. Would make life easier. It's not just a problem with IE (although it's one of the poorest). Every browser seems to have some quirks that don't affect any of the others.
     
  10. that would be the ultimate

    i would like to see that happen
