Default HTML rendering engine
A while ago a proof-of-concept port of WebCore has been implemented for SkyOS.
For the new C++ API a HTML rendering engine depending decision had to be made. While implementing the new API there was the chance to evaluate the different available HTML rendering engines.
Focus has been on WebCore and Gecko, using following priorities:
- Render quality
- System integration
- Support and maintenance
After extensive testing it was clear that we will use the Gecko Rendering Engine again. It is very feature complete, easy to integrate, powerful and already very well tested on SkyOS.
Expect the new GeckoView Window Class soon.
The Beta build 6752 release candidate is being uploaded now and will be tested by the alpha team. If there are no show stoppers found the beta should go live either today or tomorrow.
