Google So, how long have we been waiting for this to happen? Google has finally unveiled the future if the Android browser: it has no future. Google unveiled Chrome for Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and has designated it as the future default browser for the Android platform.

Fragmentations is not necessarily bad. It means that while Android has thousand of engineers around the world working with the free Open Source Community. Apple on the other hand is an anachronic dictatorship who don't trust not even their shadow.

Still Webkit, Darwin, Clang, LLVM and other open-source projects are done or actively supported by Apple.

Still they also(!) provide examples of that "dictatorship" thing ...early Webkit behind closed door & its unmergeable code dumps, similar with Darwin ( (edit: direct Archive.org link of http://www.opendarwin.org/en/news/shutdown.html works weird on OSnews...) "has not panned out. Availability of sources, interaction with Apple representatives, difficulty building and tracking sources"); and wasn't involvement in Clang and LLVM spooled up also because Apple didn't like publishing all their changes to GCC?
