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.

If these organizations go with Blink, then neither Apple nor these organizations have a webkit problem.


Considering Apple's contributions to WebKit were tapering off substantially - contributors leaving WebKit will be a MAJOR problem for Apple if they don't step up their game.

I'm sure they will, but saying Apple doesn't have to do a thing is clearly false.
