...Let Firefox stand on
it's own, it doesn't need to be a Chrome clone; heck Chrome was born out
of Firefox in the first place.....
Chrome/Blink was begotten/forked from Safari/WebKit. Blink was
begotten/forked from WebKit. WebKit was begotten/forked from KHTML
(Konqueror). Firefox (Mozilla/Gecko/SeaMonkey/Thunderbird) had nothing
to do with Konq's, Safari's or Chrome's inceptions.
Okay, then the "Chrome" name at least come from Firefox, I thought it
was more than that though.
Chrome in a Firefox context had and has nothing to do with the naming of
Chrome. Chrome in a Firefox context is the same as in other GUI applications.
It applies to the UI layout, theming and decorations of GUI apps generally,
