The year is 2025
There are five browser cores:
- youtube-dl, which ended up implementing a full-fledged browser in python to keep successfully downloading videos
@artemis six on Windows because BYOND still uses Internet Explorer 7's core and refuses to upgrade to a newer core.

@artemis The python-based browser has the sort of performance one might expect, but it's the only one left that is able to access sites that aren't run or licensed by Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Disney-Yutani, Google, or their subsidiaries.
@artemis I get the joke and it's quite funny but it also reminds me of the sad reality that the only real usable ones are Webkit, Blink and Gecko and as it looks rn Gecko wont be there for that much longer :/
