Submission + - Google to replace GTK+ with its own Aura in Chrome (muktware.com) 1

sfcrazy writes: Google‘s Chromium team is working on an alternative of Gtk+ for the browser called Aura. Elliot Glaysher, a Google developer explains, “We aim to launch the Aura graphics stack on Linux in M35. Aura is a cross-platform graphics system, and the Aura frontend will replace the current GTK+ frontend.” Free Software community is debating is Google trying to do Canonical? Couldn't Google just switch to Qt which is becoming an industry standard?

    where the hardware capabilities far exceed software development
    and battery life.

    is battery life. A device with a dead battery is not even a
    good paperweight.
