Hello everybody. This is me Rajagopalan working on getting webkit2 on haiku. Previously as you guys know we were trying to get IPC working. Well we have succeeded in that after hitting some obstacles. Message passing should not involve mainloop it should be totally dependent on the workqueue only. As the mainloop can be blocked because of JS Execution which leaves slow performance or even crash. Also we stumbled upon an IPC deadlock when we used mainloop (main application loop) as a proxy to send and receive messages.
