Collabora is proud to offer expertise in WebKit and several related projects to its clients. Collabora have supported and enabled clients for a wide variety of webkit ports, such as the Clutter, GTK+ and Qt ones and have enabled new HTML5 technology usingGStreamer with WebKit for our clients. Collabora is also working with relevant groups and standard organizations to extend HTML5 to cover new use cases and tasks, likevideo editing and real-time communications.
WebKit is an open source web browser engine. To quote Adele Peterson of the WebKit project, "WebKit begins where the chrome ends." That is to say, WebKit powers browsers, email clients, RSS and media readers, chat applications, weblog and text editors, and more applications on all platforms, including desktop and mobile. Most famously, the backend rendering engine for the Google Chrome and Apple Safari web browsers is WebKit and the same goes for their mobile browsers on Android and iPhone.
Today Collabora engineers are major contributors to the WebKit ecosystem. We have been involved in porting to new toolkits, extending rendering functionality, debugging and testing WebKit for our clients. We have also added new functionality to WebKit, enabling features such as video editing and real-time video conferencing through the browser.
We offer a wide range of services and software around WebKit including:
Developers at Collabora have contributed enhancements and fixes to the core of WebKit. They've also taken the lead in porting WebKit to make it more useful in GTK+ and Qt embedded environments.
In addition, Collabora is actively contributing to the Clutter Webkit port. WebKit's versatility and suitability for embedded devices appeals to Collabora and our clients. We often recommend WebKit-based solutions and can adapt a version of WebKit to a client's need.
