Pairing WebKit and Wayland for Linux-Based Embedded Web Content Presentation Systems - Žan Doberšek, Igalia

WebKit and its multi-process architecture might not seem suitable for embedded systems at first, but Wayland, the next-gen display system, has already proven itself by running efficiently on TVs, smartphones and single-board computers. This talk will present the techniques that were used to achieve efficient, hardware-accelerated rendering of Web content across the multiple processes of WebKit running under Wayland. Žan Doberšek will also share his experiences of deploying the two technologies on everyone's favorite mini-sized computer, the Raspberry Pi. He will also present and discuss further ideas and possible solutions for creating efficient and optimized Web content presentation systems specifically crafted for embedded systems like Smart TVs and in-vehicle infotainment by using Linux, Wayland and WebKit.
