Blink, Google's new Chrome browser engine, comes to life

Quote:
The starting code base for what will become Chrome 28 is in place, and programmers are already updating it. Blink's birth was not without labor pains, though.

Blink, Google's new fork of the WebKit browser engine, is alive.

Yesterday, Google announced the project, which splits its browser work from Apple's in the open-source WebKit project. Today, Blink is up and running.

The first updates -- including a new list of 36 Blink "owners" who have authority to approve changes -- are arriving.

"Chrome 28 will be the first blinking release," Chrome programmer Mike West said in a Hacker News comment. The current stable version of Chrome is version 26; new versions arrive about every six weeks.

Thatís mainly because of the way Chrome uses different methods to display web pages compared to other browsers ó each tab in Chrome is a separate process ó and WebKit doesnít quite fit the mould.
That's not quite true...

IE10 with Enhanced Protected Mode enabled runs each tab in a separate process, or sandboxed. For that matter, the first time the Protected Mode has become available was in 2006 for IE7 on Vista.

Internet Explorer 10 gets a new sandbox : Enhanced Protected Mode

Chrome started to be available in 2008...
