Update: Google Creates Its Own Rendering Engine For Chromium

Chromium (and the Chrome browser that is built from it) is a complex web browser. Though it’s built on the standard WebKit rendering engine, it uses multi-process architecture. This is what allows one tab to crash horribly and the rest of the browser to keep working. However, integrating this and many other things into WebKit became complex and slowed… Read more

Samsung Teams Up With Mozilla To Create New Browser Engine

We may soon see a new browser from Samsung. As you know, Google discontinued the stock Android browser in favor of a more closed browser, Chrome for Android.

Baidu Releases Custom ROM For The Nexus S, Scares Me

Looks like Google isn’t the only search giant with its own Android ROM. Granted, Google created Android, but Chinese search giant Baidu has created an entire Nexus S ROM. Much like Google, Baidu does it all. It has similar services to Google Drive, Picasa, Maps, Calendar, and more. So making a ROM with all those services integrated seems like a… Read more
