Webkit’s Perfect Score is Good for Adobe AIR

witkit Webkits Perfect Score is Good for Adobe AIR

Webkit has announced that their Webkit core scored a perfect 100/100 score on the Acid3 web browser standards compliance tests. If you want to know what that means, Acid3 test editor Ian Hickson has the details. Otherwise, 100% is just good, obviously.

But what this has to do with Adobe AIR?

Adobe AIR’s HTML and JavaScript within Adobe AIR are handled by the WebKit HTML/JavaScript engine. Webkit is also used by Safari browser on Mac OS X (iPhone too), KHTML browser in KDE and browser on most of Symbian devices.

As Adobe stated:

We spent a considerable amount of time researching a number of HTML rendering engines for use in Adobe AIR. We had four main criteria, all of which WebKit met:

  • Open project that we could contribute to
  • Proven technology, that web developers and end users are familiar with
  • Minimum effect on Adobe AIR runtime size
  • Proven ability to run on mobile devices

While the final decision was difficult, we felt that WebKit is the best match for Adobe AIR at this time.

Good call, Adobe!

Now you can develop the most attractive desktop RIA using the most advanced and ahead development tool, with the best build-in browser engine. How nice!

    AIR-WebKit does not support Java Applet. I tested it in MAC osX.
