    Default Adobe To Contribute To Blink Rendering Engine

    Phoronix: Adobe To Contribute To Blink Rendering Engine

    Earlier this month Google announced the Blink rendering engine as a fork of the WebKit project. After announcing their WebKit fork, Opera confirmed their plans of moving to the Blink engine too. Two weeks later, Adobe is now saying they will contribute to Blink...

    Fixed that for you.

    This announcement has nothing to do with Flash and in fact is part of their drive to build non-Flash tools that can compete with Flash Pro CS's dominance for interactive design. It's a good thing.

    I hope their contribution is about graphics and not proprietary trash like EME.

    That is exactly my point, they should provide code for Gecho to support the PPAPI or a Linux compatible NPAPI. Also it's only included with Chrome not Chromium.

    it's not included with chromium but you can symlink the libflashplayer.so from chrome's directory to chromium and then you get updated flash without the built-into-chrome google tracking.

    also mozilla has said THEY won't support ppapi on technical grounds so adobe providing the code is pointless.

    My understanding is that Mozilla doesn't want to support it because you can only get it via Chrome, so if Adobe released it as separate download or offered it as an include for other browsers that could maybe win Mozilla over. I'm sure providing a patch for Gecho and offering to maintain it would help to, after all Mozilla has just started that they don't want to develop it.
