Had a very interesting chat today with Sebastian from Mozilla who's working on their android components project:

If you want to make a browser for android, this is the place to look. Well written, well-tested, modular and composeable components covering all of the different parts of the browser. This will make making browsers and browser-like apps much easier!

@sam so can we expect to see Cliqz make the jump to Geckomponent around time Firefox release their Geckomponent browser?

@da Just accessing the options at the moment. Just migrated Ghostery android to fennec (Firefox for android) last year, and then learnt Mozilla's plans to stop working on it.

Would very much like to use GeckoView for rendering is possible though, there are too many Chrome webview browsers around!
