Adobe to use Apple's WebKit for Apollo

Adobe Apollo uses WebKit

Adobe's forthcoming Apollo project is making use of Apple's WebKit technology, says Adobe engineer Chris Brichford. Apollo is a runtime designed to simplify the development of desktop RIAs (Rich Internet Applications) that uses WebKit to implement HTML rendering. WebKit itself is an open-source browser engine used in Mac OS X applications such as Mail, Dashboard and Safari. Apollo 1.0 is due in the first half of 2007; once the project is complete, Brichford hopes that he and two of his associates will be able to return code improvements to the general WebKit community. Adobe in late May provided preliminary details of Apollo following its acquisition of Macromedia. [updated]
