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.

I don't know, to me Blink sounds better than Webkit already. I'd take Google as the company running the show over control-freak and highly-proprietary Apple, which only really cares to lock you into their iCrap and Macs. Their browser on Windows, last I checked, was crap; it's been a while, but I seriously doubt anything has changed. I never had any intentions of running an Apple browser anyway, or owning one of their obscenely-popular little gadgets. The future of Opera sounds much better now that it's been confirmed that they are not going to be using Apple's version of the engine. Good riddance Webkit.
