WebKit framework, derived from KHTML and having initiated many of HTML5 features (thanks to iPhone’s WebKit implementation, that was also allowed by Core Animation), was launched 10 years ago by Apple. The first verison of Safari was released later in 2003, and the project became open source in 2005 (Google contributed, and it has been used by Nokia, Adobe and Palm/HP).

Creator of Cappuccino worked at Apple in the initial development team for iPhone’s WebKit version (the most impressive from 2007 to 2009). Google may then be interested by 280 North, that was bought by Motorola a year ago, and is now owned by Android/GWT editor.
