Shiira is a web browser written in Cocoa. It uses the KHTML rendering engine provided by Apple's Web Kit. Since this is the same rendering engine used by Safari, HTML content rendered by Shiira will look the same as in Apple's own browser.
The Shiira Project is an attempt to development a web browser using Web Kit. All source codes used in this software are publicly available under the BSD license. We hope that our code will help other developers just starting out on their own Web Kit projects.
The first milestone and initial intention was to Create a test application using Web Kit. We accomplished this early on in the development Process, Shiira now has the ability to call on every Web Kit API function.
Our next step was to create a full-featured web browser similar to Safari. We've accomplished that with thre release of Shiira 1.0.
Now that Shiira 1.0 is released, we are evaluating future development of the web browser. We have a lot of top secret ideas in store for the future of Shiira, and you'll see some them when implemented in Shiira 1.x.
