Maybe now would be a good time to ask if there are some additions to Wayfarer that aren't in OWB, and vice versa?
There's a lot of things that OWB has that Wayfarer doesn't. In part since the WebKit doesn't support this yet, in part because I haven't had the chance to implement it in Wayfarer itself and in part because I did not even start looking into some of the stuff.
I'm not going to bother with a lot of things that Fab did in OWB - Inspector being one example. Another thing that isn't happening is web activity LEDs OWB has (there's no provisioning for that in WebCore).
For some summary of what's working:
- A very recent WebKit with a standard JS interpreter with several big endian fixes. Compatibility with most websites is pretty good.
- Standard navigation controls
- Copy & paste
- Downloads (in progress, since that part isn't working well in WebCore itself)
- Very fast ad-blocking
- Per-host settings
- HTML Crypto (missing from OWB)
On the current TODO list:
- Settings UI
- Storing passwords
- Spell checking
On the maybe list:
- Media playback
- Composited display / GL
As I've mentioned, compatibility is pretty good. There are sites that do not work though. Maps & Twitter being among them. These are unlikely to work anytime soon.
