I do not buy that the fork has been made for technical reasons alone.
Disclaimer: I work in the Chrome team in Google, but I am speaking for myself.
The fork will continue to support every OS where Chrome runs, which I think are more that the ones where Safari runs... it will me no more "closed source" or "unreadable" than Webkit, and it does not need to be "written from scratch" as that ridiculous page implies.
So yes, I also found that page misleading at best, certainly wrong, and actually a bit offending.
