Microsoft "In a move that has raised eyebrows, Microsoft has submitted a patch to the WebKit project to extend the open source rendering engine with a prototype implementation of the Pointer Events specification that the company is also working on together with Google, Mozilla, and Opera. WebKit is the rendering engine used in Apple's Safari and Google's Chrome browsers, making Microsoft's work a contribution to products that are in direct competition to its own."

Maybe Microsoft are finally giving up on their own rendering engine, and getting ready to move to WebKit... wouldn't be the end of the world if they did that, would it?

I don't think so. It is already the most widely used HTML rendering engine.
