Google's "Blink" rendering engine

Web developers has always had to test against both Safari and Chrome, and both in mobile and desktop versions, since they have completely different feature sets, different css prefixes, and are built from different versions of Webkit.
The change here seems to be that Google drops a lot of Safari-specific stuff from their Webkit tree. That change was expected long ago, since Apple stated that upstream will be based around Webkit2 (which is pretty much Safari-only). Apple has never been a very considerate upstream. Something similar happened around CUPS where Linux distributions have to keep forks going.

As I understand it almost 100 people (93 was the number I saw) got the axe with Opera's move to Chromium.

However, the implementation of the CSS features requiring those prefixes is quite differently (esp. transforms on mobile).
