Ten New Things in WebKit 3

“Lately we’ve been talking about a lot of great new features in the latest development trunk of WebKit – features like web fonts, client-side database storage, CSS transforms and CSS animation. These features will likely make it to an official release someday. But I’d like to take a step back and talk about some older features, namely all the great stuff in our recent stable release. Apple recently released Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, including Safari 3. The latest Safari is also included in Mac OS X 10.4.11, the latest update to Tiger. A corresponding version is available as the latest Safari for Windows Beta, including the new features and lots of stability and usability improvements. Apple’s site can tell you a lot about the new end-user features of Safari 3. But a lot of the goodness is on the inside, in the WebKit engine that powers Safari. Here’s a list of ten of the most exciting engine enhancements since the Safari 2 version of WebKit, with lots of details and demos. These features are all included in the WebKit that comes with Safari 3 – you don’t have to download nightlies or anything else to get them.”
