Google puts Chrome on a cookie diet (which just so happens to starve its rivals, cough, cough...)

Re: Chromium next

They don't have to do that. They control the core, so they can keep adding things to it that are difficult to rip out of the code, and enforce their control that way. That means that some other browsers will, by using chromium, be forced to choose to stay with an old and insecure version, fork and reimplement all of that, or run Google code without protection.
