Google have been tinkering with their Blink engine, and have removed a crazy 8.8 million lines of code. Blink is a rendering browser engine, with the team behind Blink removing those 8.8 million lines of code in just over a month.
Alex Komoroske, a product manager on Chrome's Open Web Platform, spoke to a group of Google I/O attendees that removing so much code had more than one improvement - not only did it improve the engine itself, but it had a huge effect on the engineers, too. The engineers are more productive and the team is now exploring new rendering techniques and code contribution requests from Abode, Intel, and Microsoft.
