Scroll into View, XHR with ArrayBufferViews and Text Autosizing

Published on in Google Chrome, Last Week, tech, WebKit. Version: Chrome 22

With just 770 commits last week, 333 at Chromium and 437 at WebKit, the impact of the Independence Day celebrations is quite visible. Since the open-sourcing of Chromium in 2008, there have been only 11 weeks during which WebKit received more commits than Chromium.

The context menu for nodes in Web Inspector now includes a “Scroll into view” item. Snippets can be evaluated and the visual appearance of Web Socket frames has been improved.

Following I/O’s Chrome for iOS announcement, first steps are being made towards upstreaming the iOS code.

XMLHttpRequest’s send() method is now able to transmit ArrayBufferViews, the “script-nonce” directive from the Content Security Policy specification has been implemented, and a basic framework for Text Autosizing had landed.

BlackBerry enabled support for the Microdata API and scoped stylesheets on their port. EFL also enabled some features, namely support for both the Gamepad and the Microdata APIs.

I may be wrong, so please correct me, but from my knowledge isn’t the Chromium commits for the entire development browser and the WebKit commits purely for WebKit so to speak?

An important part of Chromium — the part that displays websites, actually is WebKit. Chromium implements back-ends for most of WebKit’s features, such as storage, databases and media pipelines, and, of course, is the visible browser around it.

Updated, thank you Rob! I interpreted the File System View commit as a back-end update, cheers for pointing it out :-).
