Okay, why say "web browsers are hard to make, you need a huge budget to do so" instead of
Chrome wasn't built in a day
@faho on FreeBSD build servers, we often have that problem:
Chrome doesn't finish building in a day (and a half), the build job is killed, and there's no update.
@scanlime... do you believe the romans were the good guys?
Because I'm not calling this a good thing.
@scanlime Chrome has had a fuckton of work poured into it, and competing with that requires a huge budget?
That's why Chrome's hegemony is so hard to beat, which is why "everyone" but Mozilla has basically given up on making their own browser from scratch
@scanlime I... I don't?
I use it?
It's just that Chrome has the overwhelming market share, so it is the thing to beat?
Firefox is somewhere at *maybe* 10% (discounting mobile entirely because that's a broken ecosystem).
I wonder if it is splittable into making/adopting a #wasm machine and making a js JIT compiler into wasm.
There is also KJS but i wonder if it is actually usable now.
@faho And the way diversity in the browser market is waning, you could even say that
All roads lead to Chrome.
