Microsoft’s Chakra


Today at JSConf US Last Call in Florida, we announced that we will open-source the core components of Chakra as ChakraCore, which will include all the key components of the JavaScript engine powering Microsoft Edge. We expect to open the ChakraCore repository on GitHub next month.

… Are there any closed-source browsers, anymore? I mean, legacy IE still is, I’d assume, but Firefox is open-source, Chrome was open-source last time I checked,1 WebKit is open source which covers Safari and most of the micro-browsers. Huh.

  1. Which, given, was quite a while ago. Is the new Blink engine still open-source?
