Mozilla and Samsung Announce Cooperation to Build New Browser Engine

Friday, April 5th, 2013

This is kind of an interesting development … the more browser engine alternatives that are out there, the better.

With Opera joining Google and Apple to use Webkit as the core engine of its browser, the number of major engines dropped from four to three. Only Microsoft with its Internet Explorer and Mozilla with Firefox are maintaining their own engine. Microsoft should not have any issues financing development of the engine and neither should Google, but Mozilla, a non-profit organization, depends much on the money it earns by selling the default search engine provider spot of the browser to Google.
