    Apple has remained the only major company that is developing the Open Source WebKit engine. After Google left, Apple developers announced a "spring sweep" and the removal of unnecessary code from the project , including someone else's JavaScript engine V8.

    • #if USE (GOOGLEURL)
    • #if USE (V8)
    • #if! USE (JSC)
    • #if PLATFORM (CHROMIUM)
    • Skia
    • DOMFileSystem
    • WebLayer and its scrolling implementation
    • #Defines Features That Are Not Popular
