Safari Adopts WebKit2

By | February 28, 2011 | 5 Comments

Safari Adopts WebKit2Back in April of 2010, Apple has announced a new version of WebKit framework which is essentially called WebKit2

Well, it looks like the upcoming Mac OS X Lion release will feature an improved Safari web browser that finally utilizes Webkit2.

One of the main framework goals is to utilize a split process model, so the web content would be placed into a separate process. As a result, bad plugin, tab etc. won’t crash the whole web browser.

This behavior is very similar to Chrome’s; however, as split process module is directly integrated into WebKit2 framework, other clients will be able to use it as well.

Unwanted Firefox Plug-Ins

Unwanted Firefox Plug-Ins

Asa Dotzler, the Director of Community Development at Mozilla Corp. has raised a fair question:

Why do I have these plug-ins in Firefox? I don’t think I ever asked for any of them

There are quite a few plug-ins that make little to no sense, for example:

Why would Firefox ever need a Google or RockMelt Update? Furthermore, why is it okay to install all this malware for the big guys like Apple or Google?

P.S. They are enabled by default.

Skyfire Cashes in Almost 1 Million Dollars

By | November 10, 2010 | 18 Comments

Skyfire Cashes in Almost 1 Million DollarsMight make Opera jealous.

With all the “problems” that plagued Skyfire for the iOS launch, the numbers are in.

According to the MobileCrunch post, a company behind mobile web browser Skyfire has sold more than 300 000 copies for their first weekend.

If we do the math:
300,000++ * $2.99 = ~$900,000

Now, Skyfire will obviously not receive all that cash, as Apple wants their cut as well (30%, if no exclusive deals were made).

That still leaves the company with more than 600,000 USD to spend on candies and chocolate.
