  22. 22. There is no single WebKit Not all WebKits have hardware-accelerated animations. That requires good access to a high-power GPU, and not all devices provide that. Similarly, interfaces for the network stack, mouse, keyboard, and threading system, must be written separately for each browser. And not everyone uses the same WebKit version. See http://quirksmode.org/webkit.html
  23. 23. Proxy browsers• A proxy browser leaves the fetching and rendering of resources to a server.• The client receives a compressed bitmap.• Advantage: cheap device and low data costs• Disadvantage: no client-side interaction. Every JavaScript call requires a server request.
