Internet & Networking Peter Bright has summarised some of the post-fork discussions on the WebKit mailinglists. "Now that Google is going its own way and developing its rendering engine independently of the WebKit project, both sides of the split are starting the work of removing all the things they don't actually need. This is already causing some tensions among WebKit users and Web developers, as it could lead to the removal of technology that they use or technology that is in the process of being standardized. This is leading some to question whether Apple is willing or able to fill in the gaps that Google has left." There's a clear winner and loser here.

All wrong. In the example presented in the article, the technology isn't abandonned by Google, they keep it in Blink and it is on the way to becoming a standard.

It is Apple engineers who are close to causing fragmentation by mindlessly abandoning this future standard css property.
