Epiphany, WebKitGTK+ Make Use Of Multiple Web Processes
WebKitGTK+ in its latest development form has a new multiple web process model that allows spawning one process per web view. With GNOME's version of WebKit having this feature, the Epiphany web-browser is already making use of the new API.
WebKitGTK+ 2.3.5 was released this morning with an API to allow setting the multiple web process model and other changes like languages support within the network process and other bug-fixes. Now having this multiple web process interface, GNOME's Epiphany web-browser landed support so that it can use the WebKitGTK+ feature of having one process per web view (tab/window).
Epiphany's support for multiple web processes happened with this commit that worked on around one thousand lines of code. This multi-process feature now puts GNOME's work on par with other open-source web browsers.
