Ten New Things in WebKit 3
Lately we’ve been talking about a lot of great new features in the latest development trunk of WebKit – features like web fonts, client-side database storage, CSS transforms and CSS animation.
WebKit in the News
Google’s Android announcement (see post below) has led to a new round of stories about WebKit in the blogosphere.
HTML5 Media Support
Another nice feature from the HTML5 draft specification is now available in the WebKit nightly builds for Mac OS X.
We have another cool new CSS feature to talk about: animation specified in CSS.
WebKit now has rudimentary support for specifying transforms through CSS.
WebKit Does HTML5 Client-side Database Storage
The current working spec for the HTML5 standard has a lot of exciting features we would eventually like to implement in WebKit.
WebKit now supports CSS @font-face rules.

In the previous entry I talked about the basic structure of a CSS box.
