As of the first half of 2010, an analyst estimated the cumulative number of mobile handsets shipped with a Web Kit-based browser at 350 million.
The week after Hyatt announced Web Kit's open-sourcing, Nokia announced that it had ported Web Kit to the Symbian operating system and was developing a browser based on Web Kit for mobile phones running S60.
On June 7, 2005, Safari developer Dave Hyatt announced on his weblog that Apple was open-sourcing Web Kit (formerly, only Web Core and Java Script Core were open source) and opening up access to Web Kit's revision control tree and the issue tracker.
This was announced at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2005 by Apple Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Bertrand Serlet.
Web Kit is a layout engine software component for rendering web pages in web browsers. Web Kit is also the basis for the experimental browser included with the Amazon Kindle e-book reader, and for the default browser in Apple i OS, Black Berry Browser in OS 6 and above, and Tizen mobile operating systems.
Web Kit's C application programming interface (API) provides a set of classes to display web content in windows, and implements browser features such as following links when clicked by the user, managing a back-forward list, and managing a history of pages recently visited.
Apple has also ported Web Kit to i OS to run on the i Phone, i Pod Touch, and i Pad, where it is used to render content in the device's web browser and e-mail software.
Other applications on mac OS make use of Web Kit, such as Apple's e-mail client Mail and the 2008 version of Microsoft's Entourage personal information manager, both of which make use of Web Kit to render e-mail messages with HTML content.
New web browsers have been built around Web Kit such as the S60 browser KDE's Rekonq web browser and Plasma Workspaces also use it as the native web rendering engine.
The project evolved into Squirrel Fish Extreme (abbreviated SFX), announced on September 18, 2008, which compiles Java Script into native machine code, eliminating the need for a bytecode interpreter and thus speeding up Java Script execution.
On April 8, 2010, a project named Web Kit2 was announced to redesign Web Kit.
In mid-December 2005, support for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) was merged into the standard build and in early January 2006 the source code was migrated from Concurrent Versions System (CVS) to Subversion (SVN).
