Unfortunately, I think the war is already lost. Web standards, just like Firefox, are both kept around by google so that they can pretend they don't control the web.

I am not at all certain they can be unseated, implementing a new browser or even just maintaining a fork of an existing one is a herculean task beyond the capability of all but the largest organisations.

I think if more stuff like this happens we are going to see a proliferation of home grown solutions for lots of controls for no reason, div class=button on everything even more than now.
