Bad news for Mozilla embedders
Thursday, March 31, 2011 20:46 - GNOME
The Heise Online just published an article, Mozilla kills embedding support for Gecko layout engine, without making any fuss it starts with "Mozilla has officially ended support for embedding the Gecko layout engine in applications other than Mozilla core applications", then it links to Benjamin Smedberg post on mozilla.dev.embedding but it doesn't offer much details, or reasons (other than "our product is firefox, we have to focus ressources there.").
This article ends with an open question, about applications that are currently using Gecko, but it erroneously cites Devhelp. Devhelp has been ported to Webkit a long time ago (I had a post title "Devhelp with Webkit back in 2007).
