Google Is Working On Blink-Based iOS Browser, Contrary To Apple's WebKit Rule

Longtime Slashdot reader Dotnaught writes: 'Google's Chromium developers have begun work on an experimental web browser for Apple's iOS using the search giant's Blink engine,' reports The Register. 'That's unexpected because the current version of Chrome for iOS uses Apple's WebKit rendering engine under the hood. Apple requires every iOS browser to use WebKit and its iOS App Store Review Guidelines state, 'Apps that browse the web must use the appropriate WebKit framework and WebKit Javascript.''

Google insists this is an experiment and isn't intended for release. But the stripped-down, Blink-based browser could be preparation for European competition rules that look like they will require Apple to stop requiring that other browser makers use its WebKit engine. 'This is an experimental prototype that we are developing as part of an open source project with the goal to understand certain aspects of performance on iOS,' said a Google spokesperson. 'It will not be available to users and we'll continue to abide by Apple's policies.'
