Zero hands up.

October 2nd, 2019

It’s worth making this clear then. On iOS, the only browser engine is WebKit. There are other browsers, but they can’t bring their own engine (Blink/Gecko). So, if you’re using Chrome or Firefox on iOS, it’s really the same engine Safari is using, only slightly less capable (e.g. no third-party content blocker apps work in them).

It’s worth knowing that as a developer. While Chrome supports stuff like service workers on their desktop browser and on other platforms, the browser engine made available to non-Safari browsers on iOS does not. You don’t have them there. Likewise for Firefox.
