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.

As long as standards are respected, and quirks and bugs are smashed, nobody loses.


WebKit has never squashed quirks ‐ DOM text node handling is still broken as feck since forever and js libraries like jquery still have to special-case just webkit for it.
