Beginner's Guide: Modern Apple WebKit Framework
The newest release of the WebKit framework in iOS8 provided significant simplification of iOS development process.
The crucial achievement of WebKit is that every single web content of WKWebView runs in its own process completely isolated from our app. And its processes are handled by the system. It improves responsiveness of App when web pages load a lot of JS objects and run a lot of scripts. It gives an opportunity to put individual web pages for things like background tabs and fully-occluded Windows.
And finally new WKNavigationAction class offers protocol methods which is called multiple times by the loading of a web page. Property navigationType determines the type of action triggering the navigation. We can track the loading process and tweak it according to the needs of Application.
Summary: Modern WebKit framework provides developers with the opportunity to build powerful, modern and responsive apps using web contents.
