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.

No, it must be named after the Japanese word for "Internet" or "Web" or "Net". Or maybe the Japanese word for "Net" and "Positive", combined?


And that would be "intaanetto" or "netto pojitibu"... ;)

Okaaaay... scrub that thought... REALLY FAST! :-D

How about the Japanese word for Web? And...

Adventure? Seeker? Journey? Viewer?

We gotta stick with the Japanese "theme" as long as it doesn't sound... weird.

The name Haiku was chosen not because it is of Japanese origin but for the minimalism that it represents as a form of poetry, and for legacy reasons related to BeOS (the Haiku-formatted error messages in the Net+ browser). So there is really no reason to stick to a Japanese theme for everything in Haiku.

Anyway, from what I hear, the name of the new Haiku native browser has already been decided, and it is WebPositive.

As long as it has the slogan "You should be working..." I'm happy.
