Large development community
Applications built using the Webkit engine are fast and allow users to easily browse the Internet via a powerful and extensible web browsing platform.
Used as a foundation for web browsers on multiple desktop and mobile platforms
WebKit is also used as the basis for various experimental browsers used by Amazon Kindle e-book reader and by the default browsers used in iOS, Android, Tizen and BlackBerry 10 operating systems.
Due to its cross-platform availability, WebKit based applications can be used on both Mac OS X as well as Windows platforms.
WebKit’s C++ app programming interface comes with a large set of classes that can be used to display web content and to provide various browsing features.
Full-featured and easy to use web browser with a Safari-like user interface
Furthermore, WebKit features a user-friendly interface that is identical to Apple's Safari web browser. Hence, you can open, browser and preview multiple pages in different tabs, create bookmarks, add pages to your Reading List, Email the currently opened page or share it view Messages, Twitter or Facebook.
Just like Safari, WebKit allows you to export pages to PDF documents and open page clips in your Dashboard. By accessing the View menu, you can hide or show the favorites bar, sidebar and status bar, enable or disable the Full Screen mode and change the text encoding.
What is more, you can participate in the development of WebKit and report issues that you encounter while using the app.
