Not so Chinese after all

“We don’t deny building on Chrome’s browser engine”


Chen Benfeng

An embarrassing climb-down for Redcore CEO Chen Benfeng after its website had claimed to have “broken the American monopoly” with a ‘100% China-developed web browser’. Chen said what his firm had done was a bit like the way Google built Android “on the foundations of Linux” but said he had learned his lesson. When Redcore promotes its products in future: “No more ideological or US monopoly stuff. We will be more down-to-earth and focused solely on technology.”
