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.

Regarding running each web page in his own thread, the design taken by Stephan does it half : while the layout is done by webcore in one single shared thread, the rendering is actually done by Haiku's app_server, which draw to every offscreen BView in a dedicated thread.

Multiple HaikuLauncher web view (tab or window, doesn't matter) means multiple threads. But on app_server side...
