@smokey Your expertise is interesting. I’ve heard that Google calls the shots for Chromium from other sources as well. All this makes me continue to wonder how long other browsers can continue to use Chromium and how hard it would be for them to jump ship and convert to FF’s engine or Webkit?
Aside: Microsoft has been reaching out to Linux dev’s for help porting MS Edge over to Linux. I find that interesting and confusing since as a Linux user, Edge would be one of the last browsers I’d choose. Odd strategy.
Don’t worry about length. Your post was interesting and enlightening. I always wondered how and why LibreOffice came about.
