WebKit unforked in Chromium
May 08, 2009, 02:24pm 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.
