and then there were three

Big news in the world of HTML this morning as Opera announce the end of Presto and a move to Webkit for all future products HTML rendering. Leaving the only three major rendering engines Gecko, Webkit and Trident.

Mixed views on Twitter this morning, my opinion is its a shame that they feel the need to switch, it obviously comes on the back of repeated failed attempts to persuade sloppy developers to stop using webkit prefixed code. But its probably a good thing, as they say it means less time duplicating basic rendering code already in Webkit and means the X million webkit users will get a big push of new standards compliant features from the folk over at Opera.
