Tragedy of the WebKit Commons

Tragedy of the WebKit Commons

jQuery Core has more lines of fixes and patches for WebKit than any other browser. In general these are not recent regressions, but long-standing problems that have yet to be addressed.

It’s starting to feel like oldIE all over again, but with a different set of excuses for why nothing can be fixed.

  1. IMHO, the simple fact that “everybody” is just ignoring those shortcomings by using jQuery in the first place is a good way for the webkit folks to ignore their bugs as well – and those webdevs don’t even know about them because jQuery hides them.

  2. Kairo- very good point.
