HTML5 Has A New Best Friend—And It's Apple, Not Google

WKWebView is SOOOOO much better than Safari!

Truth:

While this chart clearly shows PhoneGap performance improvements on iOS 8, it doesn't show just how good they will be when PhoneGap adopts WKWebView in its next release. (Adobe has been trying to, as it writes, but a bug currently prevents it from using WKWebView.) Once WKWebView is incorporated, according to Scirra, PhoneGap will "close this [performance] gap and match Safari's performance."

Only one big problem: iOS 8 still does not support HTML5 video.

They think QuickTime is better.
