Why would this matter to most folk? But my second question is why does it matter?
In my opinion DIVERSITY is good. Here's why.
"There's some concern that the common code base Blink and WebKit share could lead to some problems when it comes to recommending new standards. For the time being, it's going to be much easier to make a proposed spec work in both Blink and WebKit than, say, Gecko. Mozilla, Microsoft, and other W3C members will do their best to make sure everyone's on the same page."
So I'm unsure if I would care if it's one or the other given the common code base.
I'm certain it doesn't add to security.
I am aware that Blink is now in Opera 16 and Chromium. Is Blink used by other browsers right now, today, 15 August? I hear tell that Chromium clones Iron Browser and Comodo Dragon browser will use Blink soon. Tell me,please what is up. Thanks ahead of time for your kindness.
