Awesomium has a long and troubled history. It is a "wrapper" based on Google's Chromium. It is an open source product today, which was apparently, originally ,an independent company. Today, that company offers a "supported" version of Awesomium, however as you point out that support is a joke. Or possibly the "independent company" came after the fact, I am not positive which.

BTW, that "small shop" was only ever one individual from everything I have been able to find out. A classic case of marketing guile if there ever was one!
