WebKit unforked in Chromium

May 08, 2009, 03:24pm EDT

 

 

As Darin mentioned on chromium-dev, Chromium no longer uses a forked copy of WebKit. We now pull directly from svn.webkit.org and all changes to WebCore will be upstreamed before being pulled into Chromium.

This is great news because

  • It forces Chromium developers to contribute more to the WebKit project and write better cross platform patches.
  • Cross platform code in WebCore will get reviewed by WebKit folks.
  • Updating the version of WebKit that Chromium uses will be easier.

I’ve been unable to keep up with the weekly summary of Chromium commits since I no longer have a 60 minute commute to work on a bus. Instead, here’s a graph of commits per week.

The tree moves fast.
