With the OS X push of 10.5.1 and 10.4.11, and a new Safari/Win beta, we see the latest and greatest of WebKit in Safari itself.
To kick this off, Maciej Stachowiak has blogged 10 new things in WebKit 3:
- Enhanced Rich Text Editing: And RTE needs help!
- Faster Page Loading: WebKit 3 is 1.4 times as fast
- SVG: Yay
- XPath: Yay
- New and Improved XML Technologies: XSLTProcessor, DOMParser, XMLSerializer, a better XHR (“incremental updates for persistent server connections”)
- Styleable Form Controls: No more native
- Advanced CSS Styling: Text-stroke, text-shadow, and more
- Reduced Memory Use: WebKit 3 uses 14% less memory
- Web Developer Tools: Web Inspector, Drosera
