Chris Krycho has written an excellent post about how us fickle web developers might sometimes confuse features that land in one browser as being “the future of the web.” However, Chris argues that there’s more than one browser’s vision of the web that we should care about:
It’s also worth recognizing how these decisions aren’t, in almost any case, unalloyed pushes for “the future of the web.” They reflect business priorities, just like any other technical prioritization.
I particularly like Chris’ last point about business priorities because I think it’s quite easy to forget that browser manufacturers aren’t making the web a better place out of sheer kindness; they’re companies with investors and incentives that might not always align with other companies’ objectives.
