I disagree with this, we have worked in web features in the past even
if nobody paid us for it, just for our own interests or because the
community asked for a certain feature. It's true that we don't have as
many resources as Apple, but I don't think we just wait until they
develop features for us. We don't need to be rich to contribute web
features to WebKit.
