Adobe To Contribute To Blink Rendering Engine
Written by Michael Larabel in Google on 15 April 2013 at 04:25 PM EDT. 11 Comments
Earlier this month Google announced the Blink rendering engine as a fork of the WebKit project. After announcing their WebKit fork, Opera confirmed their plans of moving to the Blink engine too. Two weeks later, Adobe is now saying they will contribute to Blink.

Adobe isn't going to be monogomous towards Blink but they will continue supporting Mozilla's Gecko as well as WebKit too. Adobe's Vincent Hardy wrote that he feels Blink will "strengthen an already healthy browser competition." Adobe will contribute to Blink through their Edge Tools development, which is driven by the Chromium Embedded Framework. There will also be other contributions to open browsers for driving new features to the web.

More details can be found in this Adobe blog post.
