Can we stop Chromifying web browsers please?

As the recent supply chain attack on the Linux kernel shows, open source is not necessarily safe. As complexity increases, so too does time to detection for any malicious commits.

This brings me to the point, Microsoft Edge runs on Chromium now. Don’t get me wrong the old Edge was shit yes, but having one base for all web browsers just opens up users to a giant zero day sometime in the future. As of now the only mainstream alternative left (for all OS, Safari not counted) is Firefox.

Is this just how it’s going to be and is it too late?
