Firefox developer Ben Kuchera has announced he is joining Google Chrome team, a move that comes after Mozilla’s own Chromium project.
Firefox developers can now get access to the Chrome team by following these steps:Follow the instructions on the Google Chrome Developer Portal to install the Chrome browser.
Once you’ve installed Chrome, you’ll need to sign in to the Google Developer Portal.
Click the Sign in button and select your Google account to add a new Chrome user account.
The Chrome team is responsible for making the engine available to developers, and will provide updates as they become available.
Kucheras announcement comes after the Mozilla Project announced plans for a partnership with Google to develop a new web browser.
That project is now codenamed Project Ara, and the Firefox team is now part of the project.
Mozilla has already released its Ara SDK for the Google-built Ara platform, and plans to release Ara 2 as part of Google’s Project Ara 1.
Firefly developers are also in the spotlight after the company announced plans in April for the release of its new Firefox browser.
Firefox is one of the most popular web browsers for Android devices, and Google has been pushing for more web apps in the browser.
Mozilla CEO Mitchell Baker recently said he hopes to release a Firefox browser in the coming years, and that Firefox 4.8 will be the first version to make use of the Chromium engine.
