Please read the linked post.

What’s in the app store is called Chrome but it is little more than a skinned version of Safari. Other rendering engines are banned.

We’ll never know if it’s possible if it’s never allowed.

Safari is the fastest browser on iOS.

Safari is also the slowest browser on iOS.

(Safari is the only browser on iOS.)

Replying to a tweet from @radogado

You’re asking me to name a browser that literally can’t exist because it’s not allowed to exist.

How can a browser for iOS perform better or worse than Safari if no other browsers are allowed on iOS?

Replying to a tweet from @radogado

I would love it if the app store rules banned any browser that performed worse than Safari.

But they don’t.

They ban any browser, full stop.

Replying to a tweet from @danielCK

Opera, Edge and all the others Blink-based apps on Windows/macOS are skinned versions of Chromium.

(I agree that the skin can include important user-facing features.)

Replying to a tweet from @radogado

How does limiting web access to one browser give the web special attention other than in a negative sense?

Can you honestly not conceive that a browser other than Safari could be better for performance and features?

Replying to a tweet from @radogado

Are you honestly saying that browsers are the only kind of apps that can be bad for battery life? (and therefore it’s reasonable to ban them …but not other apps)

It would be nice if there were an attribute on the img element that you could use to point to the low-res version.

We could call it something like …lowsrc.
