BeOS & Derivatives "It looks like the Haiku Webkit port initiated by Ryan Leavengood has entered a productive second stage of development, and thanks to the recent work by one of the new project team members, Andrea 'xeD' Anzani, tangible progress has been made as shown by the recent screenshot showing the HaikuLauncher application rendering bebits.com. I was curious about his work, so I went directly to the source and asked a few questions to Andrea; here are his answers." On a related note, Haiku now has a new nightly build archive.

Webkit is quite portable, for a browser. You can emphasize the first part of that sentence, or the last. Still, it's not exactly news that it's more difficult to port programs to Haiku, because the OS's API is fairly different from most others. That's really what makes Haiku interesting, though.
