FWIW there are bits of the code here, but I don't know what is the extent of it


The browser is proprietary, but includes open source components, without checking, what you've linked to above is probably just the open source bits.

I'm honestly curious as to who'd move to a proprietary browser in 2016 given all the history of the last couple of decades!

Google, for one. Chromium is an open-source project, but Chrome is and has always been proprietary.

It's still using an open source rendering engine, which I think is the important bit, it's just the container that is proprietary.
