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.

Lack of Flash is a major downside for an alternative OS these days, and that should be top priority to ease the pain a bit.

Flash is running about almost a year now.. the latest version released by two weeks ago (gnash 0.8.7) seems very stable! the only downside is FF 2.0 browser port, that is slow on Haiku. With this new Browser, is a matter of time build a new flash plugin with better performance.
