P.S. Sorry for missing last week’s recap and some news (was traveling + missed flight back), still catching up :-)
Recently, one of the Apple employers has announced a new WebKit framework, that they call 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.
As for today, initial versions are available for Windows and Mac platforms.
Thanks to Blake for the news tip.
