Webkit2 announced by Apple http://bit.ly/cP1EJw That’ll put some “HTML5” power into all the webkit clients

Webkit is the core technology that renders HTML to the screen in Safari, Mobile Safari, Chrome, most mobile web browsers and much more. Rolling all the technologies into one framework is going to make it all work faster.

This is a good thing as this power is needed for smooth “Flash-like” presentations in “HTML5” (HTML5’s <video> tag, Javascript, Canvas and CSS in reality). Apple are pushing hard down this direction by banning Flash (and even compiled Flash in the v4 iPhone OS) so they need to make HTML5 “work” in its place.
