    What's the advantage to using WebKit? Why do you prefer it above Chrome/FF/Safari?

    it's the newest and greatest things that'll come to safari sooner or later...
    not everything works well with it since it's a development ware... but if you want to see the future of safari, that's basically it right there...

    Huh?

    Safari and Chrome are both built on WebKit. FF is based on Mozilla.

    there is a browser called Webkit (webkit.org)
    it's basically Safari on speed, but not 100% stable since it's a development software. see my previous reply

    straight out of the box, it works fine, but once you start adding pluggins it becomes a little unstable, at least when i used it it was... but if you're using to using safari basic install, nothing wrong with webkit...
