A better web browser standard is being developed by Google, Apple, and Mozilla.
The developers of Chrome, Safari, and Firefox will collaborate across industries to develop Speedometer 3, a prototype that balances their respective ideas for gauging performance.
Making a tool that will score the efficacy of rival products by three different companies seems like a recipe for disaster.
The permission system of Speedometer’s governance policy, however, varies depending on the implications.
For instance, “non-trivial adjustments” will need approval from one of the other two parties, while “major changes” will need approval from the other two businesses.
Meanwhile, a reviewer from any of the three browser manufacturers can approve “minor adjustments.”
The goal of the policy is for “the working team to be able to move swiftly for the majority of changes, with a greater level of procedure and agreement expected based on the effect of the change.”
The undertaking will adhere to Speedometer 2, the most recent de facto standard created by the WebKit team at Apple.
The top four browsers used now are Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.
Microsoft Edge, the fourth browser, relies on Google’s open-sourced Chromium with the Blink and V8 engines rather than running its engine.
The GitHub page for the Speedometer 3 project notes that it is “under active development and is unreliable,” even though it is still in its early stages.
Although we don’t yet know when the browser will be available, the groups advise using the available browser until production is much further along. The browser will be powered by AI concepts and Meta.
