Following Googles announcement that it would fork webkit to develop its own Blink browser, Today Vincent Hardy, Adobe’s director of engineering for the company’s Web Platform team, announced that Adobe will be contributing to both browsers, Webkit and Blink.

 

Adobe has traditionally contributed quite a bit to both WebKit and Google’s Chromium project and also worked with Mozilla on its Gecko engine. As Hardy notes, ahead of Google’s announcement, there had been some concern about a “WebKit monoculture” after Opera announced it would abandon its own engine in favor of WebKit. Adobe, Hardy argues, wasn’t too worried about a WebKit monoculture, but in his view, ” the web is bigger than any one of its leading browser implementations and too important to be limited to a single code base even if that implementation has variations.”
