Mark Dain Are the people who build web browsers also web developers? To me it seems there wouldn't be a lot of overlap between the two and I wonder what effect it has on the direction of the web

Asko I know a lot of people who build Chrome are actually industry leaders at web development, for example: Paul Irish.

Martijn Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't believe Irish as written a single line of code on Chrome/Blink/Chromium/WebKit. He has much the same role as Bruce Lawson has at Opera: being paid by a browser vendor to do cool things with front-end tech and be a bridge between web developers and the browser. But they are neither part of the W3 working group that writes the HTML standard, nor part of the team that programs the actual render engine.
