", but without writing hardly any code"


eek. Perhaps you could fix this badly formed sentence, I think you mean "while writing hardly any code." Taken literally, this means you did write lots of code.


You could ask the site-administrator to do something to avoid the repeated trackbacks from the same source too.


I have to echo what the others said here - this article is very nice, but also very basic, though it'll be interesting to see what else you do with it. For example allowing your user to dynamically ignore certain javascript instructions or images would be an interesting extension. Showing page rendering errors would also be useful for debugging user websites, stuff like that.

    WebKit does provide certain more advanced features and I am working on an article that will focus on quite a few of them. Unfortunately given the architecture of WebKit, unless you plan on writing your own resource handlers functionality such as "dynamically ignoring certain javascript instructions" or "showing page rendering errors" are possible only within limit scope.

    As for how basic the content of the article is, I wonder how it is that we can offer an advanced article about WebKit without offering the basic knowledge in the first place.

    As for the trackbacks, I have no control over how they are handled and the fact is I do think it is important enough to talk about.

    I can't say that I appreciate the grammar criticism. The clause in question (because the quoted section is a clause, not a sentence) is awkward for sure, but "badly formed" is an awfully extreme way to categorize it. Of course, I am sure you can all point us to your vast array of grammatically perfect published works so my editors and I can learn what real writing looks like.
