If you are a developer let us know how useful these additions will be to your Web Apps. If you’re not a developer that might look like mumbo jumbo to you but rest assured it means more better web applications could be coming your way soon, and since Apple uses Safari’s WebKit to render everything from iTunes to App Store or iAd to Apple.com, and Google uses it Gmail and pretty much all their sites, there’s potential for a lot more, lot better content coming our way.
