It's a bit scary though, because when this goes through it will be a two browser game only, Chrome vs Firefox and that's. I know there's actually tons more of high quality browsers but in all reality for 99% of people there will only be two. Should Firefox ever fall or turn evil after that then it's game over.
Not necessarily. There are other contenders in works like Brave.

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.
