Someone will not like it. But I am for it. And for the ver first time I think Scomo is doing something right at the right time.
But those are just good to have. At least most of them are.
When come down real deal, having different rendering engine is a must. Browser exploits for one will also benefit from single rendering engine.
The Chromium project is still largely at selected few's hand and it may become the vehicle to deliver someone's agenda forcing people in the ethical forks to comply etc. So far, nothing too bad happen but who knows what will happen one day.
This is why Firefox is so precise these day.
First, by using the same rendering engine, browsers still compete to each other. They simply just don't compete in the rendering engine arena.
Second, it is different from when IE was dominant. IE was close sourced. IE did whatever they want. IE favoured Microsoft (of cos). IE was hostile to other competitors. IE didn't grow (or just slow). In fact they can't technically compare (rendering engine vs browser).
There are more pros I can think of but you got the picture. I almost fall for it.
Firefox is the last popular browser that (DRM aside: https://boingboing.net/2020/01/08/rip-open-web-platform.html) that have their own rendering engine. The rest are all based on Chromium. I used to think this is really bad as Chromium monopolies the rendering engine world. But after I have read a couple of articles about worlds after everyone base on Chromium I couldn't help but think that's actually a viable option.
This guy deserve much more view.
