Browsers and Client-side Web Technologies
Igalia leads the development of essential projects and components in the areas of web rendering and browsers. With five WebKit reviewers and 15 WebKit and Blink/Chromium consultants dedicated to development, we have the most WebKit expertise found in the consultancy business.
WebKit is a cross-platform, Free Software web rendering engine. It is used everywhere from major Web browsers (Safari, Chrome) to embedded platforms (iPhone, WebOS or Android). Having earned 36% of the world market share and continuing to grow, WebKit serves as the foundation of the next wave of web technologies.
Our numerous contributions to the WebKit project include more than 3500 commits and 2000 reviews since 2009 touching critical aspects of the platform like Accelerated Compositing and the GStreamer multimedia backends used by many WebKit ports, including WebKitGTK+, WebKitEFL, QtWebKit and the ports for WinCairo and Mac.
Our team members are not only WebKit experts, they are engineers with solid backgrounds in embedded, graphics, UI design and multimedia. They integrate WebKit in user-oriented environments like the GNOME platform, where we drive the web development effort and maintain its flagship web browser, Epiphany.
We also have considerable experience creating, maintaining and optimizing ports of WebKit, have been the maintainers of the WebKitGTK+ port since 2009 and maintain core parts of the EFL and Clutter ports.
