Moreover, our work on WebKit is much more than just bringing a browser to Haiku. The ultimate goal is to have a BWebView that can be easily embedded in other applications, and used to render web pages inside them. This has already led to several improvements to the OS itself over the year: better APIs for text rendering and drawing layers in app_server as well as tracking bugs in the affine transform support and its interaction with clipping; a complete HTTP support library that made it possible and easy to write apps such as Weather, HaikuDepot, fRiSS, HaikuToDo, and the like, and would also make it possible to have a Dropbox filesystem or other stuff making use of REST APIs. A browser isn’t all there is to the web, and it is yet another place where we can show how it pays off to have a fully integrated operating system, where everything just fits together, and how we manage to make this work even with web apps. It is indeed a long road to get there, but it is an interesting challenge, too. Much more than just porting an existing browser and running that, I think.
