Google Zipped Lips

For a long time now, Google has been teasing that they are working on closing the gap between how Chrome renders pages and how GoogleBot renders pages. The web rendering engine Google uses for crawling the web is going to get a lot more advanced but Google won't say when.

Martin Splitt from Google, who is close to the project on making this happen, said at SMX Munich the other day that he knows when it is scheduled to happen but he won't say. This was posted on Twitter from one of the sessions he sat on:

Martin responded with zipped lips:

Google doesn't want to give a timeline and then miss it and have to deal with the backlash on it. They've made that mistake more than once.
