Google It's apparently browser engine day today. After Mozilla and Samsung announcing Servo, Google has just announced it's forking WebKit into Blink. Like WebKit, Blink will be open source, and it will also be used by other browser makers - most prominently, Opera has already announced it's not using WebKit, but Blink. Update: Courtesy of MacRumors, this graph illustrates how just how much Google contributed to WebKit. Much more than I thought. Also, Chrome developer Alex Russell: "To make a better platform faster, you must be able to iterate faster. Steps away from that are steps away from a better platform. Today's WebKit defeats that imperative in ways large and small. It's not anybody's fault, but it does need to change. And changing it will allow us to iterate faster, working through the annealing process that takes a good idea from drawing board to API to refined feature."

RE[2]: I have to disagree in part

There's nothing in your post that is provably inaccurate, trolling or off-topic.

I'm in two mind as to whether the new OSNews, when it comes, should keep comment voting. I won't go into pros and cons here, but I do think that it should be made really plain --- i.e. in the pop-up --- that when you vote someone down it cannot be because you disagree with them.

Putting aside 'Troll' and 'Off-topic', if a post is 'Inaccurate' then the poster should definitely be called out on the specific inaccuracy, not just down-voted.
