Well, there’s not much to say here. Google has announced that’s moving away from Webkit and into a Webkit-based spinoff of it’s own creation, called Blink. Blink will allow Google to improve its rendering engine at its own speed and introduce a few performance and stability improvements on the side, particularly for memory management. Opera has also announced that instead of Webkit, they’re also moving to Blink, although when the process is complete is uncertain. For the moment, Google claims Blink allows for complete interoperability with Webkit and porting will be an easy process.
