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.

Don't Like Chrome

Gave Chrome on the desktop a try. Didn’t like it, uninstalled it. Firefox is my backup browser. Safari is my main browser when on a Mac. When I was on Windows, Firefox was my primary browser. Never really liked Chrome on Windows or OS X. Hate IE even more.

Downloaded Chrome for iOS. Played with it for a week. Didn’t like it, uninstalled it.

The only thing I liked about Chrome for iOS was the pop-up menu when you touched a hyperlink. Safari’s pop up has been somewhat spotty lately after the introduction of the iPad mini. I suspect Apple has made it less touch sensitive due to the lack of bezel on the iPad mini. It sucks that it’s so imprecise now on the full size iPad.
