Android Uses WebKit

androidMy guess was wrong.

I somehow thought Google will partner with Firefox as a defaul browser for their new mobile project (now “Android”), however, Google’s choice was WebKit, accordeing to their SDK. Actually now I think this is a wise choice, since many (mobile) web devs are familiar with developing with WebKit thanks to Apple to make iPhone popular. And needless to say, WebKit for mobile including Nokia N-series is the one of the beat browser around.Anyway, as the storonger-than-ever WebKit is gaining even more power, “Sarfin’ Safari” (Webkit.org’s blog) has announced new features for Safari 3:

  1. Enhanced Rich Text Editing
  2. Faster JavaScript and DOM
  3. Faster Page Loading
  4. SVG
  5. XPath
  6. New and Improved XML Technologies
  7. Styleable Form Controls
  8. Advanced CSS Styling
  9. Reduced Memory Use
  10. Web Developer Tools
