Or should I have put the quotes around “new”? Blink is Google’s fork of Webkit. A lot of people like this as the Webkit market was becoming so overwhelming that it could have let us lapse back into the Internet Explorer 6 days.
But I think the most interesting piece here is that while Opera said they were going to use Webkit, they’re actually going to use Blink. Which is funny, because I assumed the entire point of Webkit and Opera together was so they could get onto iOS without fragmenting their platform.
