WebKit

An open source layout engine that is used to render Web pages in Apple's Safari, Google's Chrome and other Web browsers. It is also used in smartphones from Nokia, Apple, Google and others. WebKit was derived from the KHTML rendering engine used by the Konquerer browser in the Linux KDE desktop. In 2002, Apple modified KHTML and dubbed it WebKit. See browser rendering engine.
