Google experiments with Chrome for iOS and ditches WebKit

Apple’s App Store policies stipulate that the Chrome browser for iOS must use the WebKit engine instead of the HTML5 engine. usual BlinkGoogle isn’t hindered by this, however, from imagining a “what-if” scenario. Register It has noticed Google recently announced started work An experiment to port Blink from Chrome to iOS. The Chromium team behind the project emphasizes that the “content_shell” app is the only one. It’s not intended to be a shipping product. The company claims that it is only intended to test input performance and graphics.

A spokesperson for Google stated that the Blink port was only a prototype and part of a larger open-source initiative. It won’t be open to the public. The company will “continue abide” by Apple’s rules.

Although it is not clear why Google wants Blink to be tested on iOS, Google won’t have the right to release any Blink software if Apple keeps its policies unchanged. Only people who are skilled enough to run content_shell can have a taste of this experience.

However, the timing of these events may not be accidental. The US government wants Apple, Google to open up their platformsUsers can now install apps without being bound by the first-party stores policies. Rumours also suggest that Apple might be in the process of acquiring Android. allow third-party app stores iOS to please European regulators. Google’s early work on porting Blink to Chrome could allow Apple to change its mind and make Chrome’s web engine more flexible.

This change could lead to a shakeup in the browser market for iOS. Apple’s WebKit requirement theoretically aids security by limiting the avenues for web exploits, but it also gives third-party browsers fewer ways to stand out — they can’t use custom engines that might be faster or more feature-laden than Apple’s Safari. An alternative browser, like Android and the desktop, would offer more than a different interface.
