If you have been following Chrome News, you already know what Blink is. “Blink is an inclusive open-source community that values fostering a supportive culture”. It is a Webkit based rendering engine developed by Google. With the latest Chrome Dev Channel update, I am now officially on Blink.
No issues to report, and nothing different to write about, at least for now. Everything looks and works as usual, but if I go to chrome://version, I can see the Blink version, and it is at “537.36 (@147749)”.
However, we will soon see new features being rolled out, as the official page states “In addition to making the web platform faster and more secure, improving the web platform also means adding new capabilities and features. To fulfill our good citizenship mission, we need to be careful to add new features to the web platform in a transparent, responsible, and compatible manner. We measure success as moving the open web platform forward as a whole, not just moving one implementation forward.”
The beta and stable channels will soon be getting the Blink update, making all of Chrome work on Blink. Officially.
