Adobe Chooses WebKit for Its Apollo Project

Published October 31st, 2006
TUAW Reports That Adobe Apollo uses WebKit According to, Adobe has decided to use WebKit (the open-source parsing engine that's the basis for Apple's Safari browser) as the HTML rendering engine for its forthcoming Apollo runtime software. Now, keep in mind that Apollo is so new that it's not even mentioned on the Adobe Labs website, which is where all of Adobe's products-in-development are being staged in their early days. But apparently Apollo will be a client for future applications built using Flash, HTML, and JavaScript. Presumably using some tool that Adobe will be providing. From what I've read, no one knows much except Adobe, who has been giving some Apollo demos for the past couple of months. In any case, it's nice to hear that a major software vendor other than Apple may be getting on board the WebKit bandwagon and off of the IE one.
