Why Use A WebKit Browser?

Safari 4 (or newer) and its open-source sibling, WebKit, implement CSS features that take hours off the time required to build a classy website. Previously, you had to use JavaScript, an image editor, or both, together with complex CSS styles to achieve effects such as drop-shadows, rounded corners, gradient backgrounds, or reflections. With the CSS advances in WebKit, you now just need to apply some simple CSS styles!

Besides saving development time, this also means fewer graphics, less code, and less download time. If you're using an older version of Safari, or of Firefox, Opera or IE derivatives, come back and view this site with WebKit or a WebKit-based browser such as Safari 4.0, Safari 5.0, or Google Chrome, or with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.
