Compilers and Virtual Machines
Compiler technology is at the heart of performance optimization: compilers generate the machine code that will run your software, and as such, they are the main responsible actors in making the best use of the CPU instruction set to get the job done in the most efficient way possible.
Igalia has talented engineers who understand how compilers work and can optimize how they generate machine code for your programs, providing that performance boost that can make a real difference. Our team can provide holistic optimizations: in the runtime, on the frontend, the optimizer and in the backend.

So Chromium forked WebKit again! You've probably seen some articles on it already, but Alex Russell's piece is pretty good.In retrospect the split was easy to see coming, but I can't help but feel bittersweet about it. The announcement...
