It's so beautifully arranged on the plate — you know someone's fingers have been all over it.

Mac OS X, Macintosh


There’s a new open-source browser for Mac OS X based on Apple’s WebKit and the KHTML rendering engine…

Shiira is a web browser written in Cocoa. It uses the KHTML rendering engine provided by Apple’s Web Kit. Since this is the same rendering engine used by Safari, HTML content rendered by Shiira will look the same as in Apple’s own browser.

The Shiira Project is an attempt to development a web browser using Web Kit. All source code is publicly available under the BSD license. We hope that our code will help other developers just starting out on their own Web Kit projects.
