WebKit Market Share

Post by darth » Sun Mar 31, 2013 4:11 pm

According to wikipedia Apple's WebKit javascript layout engine has over 40 percent of market share,

Ahead of both Firefox Gecko engine and IE Trident. Xp safari version
4.0.5(531.22.7) is used here as one of browsers on this machine.

Would not leave home without it(just a saying) Xp Safari version 5 is
slow, do not use it. I don;t know the whole story,

I read on Javascriptkit.com that WebKit, Gecko, etc are venders
trademarks . Something about Safari using "nitro" as javascript core engine.

Actually it says that WebKit overall has over 40 percent. Further down in the article, there's a pie chart that shows that Apple Safari (which uses WebKit) has only 15.59%.

Considering what a gross memory hog WebKit is, along with a number of other defects and drawbacks, it's surprising that it would have that much success.

Under about on this Xp version it does have quite a few plugs-dll's.

Iis has a plug-in dll for Site Advisor Why I don't know. I have not

been to-deeply in/how to install any add-ons for it. I not

referring to Apple QuickTime, etc. But,not much for loading a browser

down with (with to many add-ons ).Yes, it is a liitle bit slower (not much) out of the gate(turn-on) than FF.

But somewhat faster than IE8 out of the gate. This refers to this

machine only(no one's else).
