re: I think anyone reading the article would think that way. Not defending google here tho. They started adding chrome specific apis a long time back ...
 

I still don't like the idea that Microsoft adopted chromium, they could have as much easily gone with Firefox's engine which lags a bit behind but is still very capable, in that process they could have improved the project and created a better competition.

That is what I hoped too, they would have helped creating a duopoly. They would have had the capital to push forward Firefox's development, fix its long standing embedding issues and maybe even provide a solid alternative to Electron.

Electron, according to many, and the biggest ecosystem around it and around Chromium is one of the main reasons Microsoft chose otherwise.

The good news is that they might be able to slow Google's questionable decisions about what goes in and doesn't go in Chromium's source code (or fork it altogether)

 

We'll have to wait and see what the future holds.
This may turn out to be a big event in browser wars, or just a small ripple.
