BeOS & Derivatives With Google Summer of Code underway for the Haiku project, the first results start coming in. The most exciting so far is the work being done on a native multi-process WebKit browser, worked on by Ryan Leavengood and GSoC student Maxime Simon. They've got an interface, and they've got most of WebKit to build.

Not knowing Chrome's internals, I venture a guess that there is little truly -new- about its multiprocess design, but merely application of good architectural concepts that have been around for a very long time, and thus little reason to grant a patent. There may be some prior art in the browser 'Voyager' included with QNX, and likely countless other software.
