Developer François Beaufort hired by Google – leaks to disappear?

François Beaufort

If there is a Chrome-related leak rolling around the internet, you can be almost sure popular developer François Beaufort is somehow related to it. The Chrome OS fan base has been blessed by his many contributions to the community. He has given us info on the Chromebook Pixel, the rumored Google “Babble” project and many more Chrome-related topics. But this may end soon, as the Google+ personality has gone under Google’s wing.

François Beaufort is now the new open-source Chromium Evangelist, and will be working closely with Google’s new and upcoming projects. We are proud of him and very glad he has found a spot where he seems to be happy, but we are also a bit sad about what may be coming.

Working with Google, Beaufort will not have the same freedom he has always had. He promises there is a lot more content to come, but we are sure he will have to answer to Mountain View if he leaks something he shouldn’t. At the very least, his leaks will be limited and come less frequently. I guess we will simply have to dig in deeper!

Enjoy your new gig, François Beaufort!
