WebPositive matures

Blog post by stippi on Fri, 2010-03-19 12:31

Well... that might be a bit bold for me to say. Obviously WebPositive still has a lot of things missing. On the other hand, this version adds some of the most crucial things, like persistent cookie support, bookmarks and a much improved browsing history implementation.

Haiku Native Browser and WebKit port progress

Blog post by maxime.simon on Fri, 2009-06-19 20:34

After a month of work, it's time to take a break and a step back to check on our progress.
And after a month what we have is a prototype of a multi-process browser.

Haiku Native Browser

Ryan and I had a dilemma: Where to start? In fact, there is a lot to do on this project.
So we decided to start with a multi-process browser prototype.

Integrate WebKit in Haiku native browser, My GSoC proposal.

Personal Profile

  • Maxime Simon

  • Brief biography:

    I am currently in my third year studying Computer Science at Rennes 1 University in France.

    I have some experience with development thanks to several academic projects, chiefly written using the Java and C languages.

    Our first big project used an obscure language called "oRis", an object and agent-oriented language developed as part of the doctoral thesis of Fabrice Harrouet. The project's objective was to design a simulation of pathfinding robots, with basic behaviour and capable of cooperating to achieve goals in a virtual maze. This project enabled us to learn how to manage a project using Subversion, and how to organise its development.
    The project was managed at this page:

Webkit port: talking to Andrea "xeD" Anzani

Webkit rendering bebits.comWebkit rendering bebits.comIt looks like the Haiku Webkit port initiated by Ryan Leavengood has entered a productive second stage of development, and thanks to the recent work by one of the new project team members, Andrea "xeD" Anzani, tangible progress has been made as shown by the recent screenshot showing the HaikuLauncher application rendering bebits.com (shown to the right). I was curious about his work, so I went directly to the source and asked a few questions to Andrea; here are his answers.

Andrea: From the questions you wrote, it looks like you think we have a working browser here. Well, we don't. I'm sorry to tell you but what you see it's just a proof that the webkit is working. Still incomplete and with a lot of bugs. The webkit is, in short words, a framework for loading, parsing and drawing an html page (including net connections and javascript interpreter). We are working on fixing and finishing it. When we are done with porting the webkit, then we can speak about the development of a web browser.
