re: Microsoft is building a Chromium based browser! 😲 VIEW POST


Gecko remains pretty damn impossible to embed into anything else.

"It was updated a very long time ago" it's definitely not a good start :-D

I suppose it's not like Microsoft wouldn't theoretically have the resources to make it happen anyways

Yeah I guess

but why put the extra effort in when it'll be less compatible and the compatibility is a primary reason they're doing it anyways?

True, it's just that we risk having basically only single browser engine with just different shells.

I read people on Twitter speculating that MS will probably end up forking Chromium a few years down the road and manage their own version. Likely for the same reason why Blink was forked from WebKit.
