Rob Isaac kindly translated Google’s PR speak into English:
What should we expect to see from Chrome and Blink in the next 12 months? What about the long term?
We have a direct strategic interest in destroying Apple’s mobile platforms because their lack of participation in our advertising and social ecosystems does not benefit our long term goals. You should expect Chrome and Blink changes in the short term to be focused in this direction.
In the longer term, we aim to have sufficient control over the installed base of web browsers to dictate whatever conditions we consider most appropriate to our business goals at the time.
I can’t get over the feeling that this is going to be bad for the web.
