BeOS & Derivatives This is news that makes me very, very happy. Stephan "stippi" Assmus has written a lengthy blog post detailing the progress made on Haiku's WebKit port, and they're quite far along. Thanks to the help of several community members, the test browser, enticingly named (euh...) HaikuLauncher, is already relatively stable, supports tabbed browsing, and a whole lot more.

Great! I hope that in the future the tabbed browsing will use the Stack&Tile implementation : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccniJHjo_Uw#t=2m52s

There's not really any benefit to doing that, Stack and Tile is more useful when you want to group together windows from different apps, it's not a complete or suitable substitute for tabs within a window of the same app in all cases.

Why is it not suitable? It will be almost identical to the Google Chrome's tabs - you can do almost the same tab manipulations between Chrome windows/tabs as in the Stack&Tile video. The ability to group together windows from different apps will be an added bonus.
