Apple’s Webkit team today announced Webkit2.  The major new feature in this new product is that each tab will house a separate process, much like Google’s Chrome except now the ‘separate process’ architecture is now built into the framework.   If a process hangs, it doesn’t take out the whole browser.  

I just tried the latest build of Webkit and that functionality isn’t yet there.  Curious time for a webkit announcement.
