Dave Rupert writes about the value of browser diversity and narrows down his feelings about it to two major value propositions:
👉 Browser diversity keeps the web slow deliberately.
👉 Browser diversity fosters consensus and cooperation over corporate rule.
While the slowness has downsides, it also has benefits. Dave concludes:
“If we do see a major reduction in browser diversity, I think we lose the intentional slowness and the cooperation mechanisms we have in place. Who knows what will happen, but my hope is that just like iron can sharpen iron, maybe chromium can sharpen chromium.”
