It's confirmed, but we already knew that. It's reconfirmed!
Linden Labs, the developers of Second Life have confirmed that web browser capabilities will be introduced in the 1.7 version of the game. . They may have written this:
"You may have read early reports in Clickable Culture, Slashdot or Boing Boing last weekend, but now the Opinion can confirm the news: next month's update, Second Life version 1.7, will come with an integrated web browser powered by Mozilla technology (the same open source code underlying the beloved Firefox browser). Later updates will even let Residents stream URLs on the surface of in-world objects they own, including walls, windows, and more."
