Steve Jobs gave the keynote at WWDC this morning, where he announced a couple of items that affect Ajax developers.
Safari for Windows
Apple is releasing the public beta of Safari for Windows today. Steve gave demos of Safari, claiming that it screams:
- ibench html performance: IE 4.6 sec, FF 3.7, Safari 2.2 seconds
WebKit is getting a real solid foundation on Windows with Apple joining Adobe on the Windows port. I bet Adobe is happy.
Scott Forstall, VP of the iPhone Division, showed off a corporate address book database application using LDAP. It looks like a native iPhone application. The card looks the same as the address book. You can direct dial from the application, email, display a map (can tie directly into the built-in Google Maps application on the phone), and more.
Since this is all on Safari, I wonder what plugins are available too.
Great to see that the SDK for the iPhone is Ajax. We all know that ;)
