If Apple can have Safari on iPhone, why not Chrome on Android? I have heard this question being asked many times. Well, looks like Google is something similar now.
Will Google start calling it Chrome or something like Chrome Mini?
As a group of Googlers haveÂ announcedÂ on the WebKit-Dev group Â (SourceÂ – Googleâ€™s Peter Beverloo), the Android team is now committed to working more closely with the WebKit community. Here is that message.
“We would like to give an update about WebKit on Android. A while ago, we started the effort to upstream the Android port of WebKit. For a variety of reasons, this work took longer than anticipated and was never finished. We realize that the incomplete Android port that exists today in WebKit ToT has caused quite a bit of confusion and inconvenience to the project as a whole and we are very sorry for that.”
So, theÂ back-endÂ structure used by Android browser will soon be similar to Chrome’s. We might see some similar features on Chrome browser. In the future, a sync between two browsers is also may get more importance.
So, do you think Google will rename the browser on Android to “chrome” or something similar? What feature of Chrome browser do you wish to see on Android’s Chrome?
