WebKit Nightly now updates itself

Category: Apple, Browsers

I had an Automator script that would go out and grab WebKit nightlies for me. NightShift does the deed for you on the Mac. But, no more.

WebKit joins Firefox, Chrome, and other browsers in auto updating channels of development.

Great stuff. Now we can live on the edge, and report bugs as they occur.

I am utterly astounded at how stable the nightly builds are for the browsers out there. Minefield is running like a charm for me, and WebKit nightly is nice and snappy. Rarely a crash on nightly code. Thanks to the browser developers for making this the case.

It’s a step in the right direction, so congratulations to the WebKit team for that.

Let’s hope the next item on the list is incremental updates – currently every new build is just shy of 20MB each time!
