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 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.
