    Blink, Google's new Chrome browser engine, comes to life

    The starting code base for what will become Chrome 28 is in place, and programmers are already updating it. Blink's birth was not without labor pains, though.

    Blink, Google's new fork of the WebKit browser engine, is alive.

    Yesterday, Google announced the project, which splits its browser work from Apple's in the open-source WebKit project. Today, Blink is up and running.

    The first updates -- including a new list of 36 Blink "owners" who have authority to approve changes -- are arriving.

    "Chrome 28 will be the first blinking release," Chrome programmer Mike West said in a Hacker News comment. The current stable version of Chrome is version 26; new versions arrive about every six weeks.

    Since Google is starting from a new code base the browser should have a smaller footprint both on Windows and the Android OS.
