WebKit, the open source rendering engine that powers Apple's Safari and is the basis of most mobile browsers today, is looking to once again escalate its level of JavaScript performance. Dubbed FTL — not "faster than light" but "fourth tier LLVM" — it's now spooled up and ready jump onto OS X and iOS. Filip Pizlo expounds in glorious, deeply nerdy fashion on the Surfing Safari blog:

Should modern web browsers show the URL or just the site name? [Poll]

Should web browsers stop showing URLs?

A recent Canary build of Google Chrome replaced the uniform resource locator (URL) of websites with the domain name of the website. So, for example, instead of www.imore.com/should-modern-web-browsers-show-url-or-just-site-name it would only give you imore.com. This has sparked an interesting debate about the nature of the web, technology, and usability. URLs are inhuman but they're also a foundational part of the web. So, should they be hidden away to make a simpler, cleaner web, or do they need to be preserved because they functionally matter?

Yahoo really really wants to be the default search engine for iPhones and iPads

Fire up Safari on your iPhone or iPad today and you'll most likely find Google as the default search engine — but if Yahoo has their way that might change. Users have the option to change from Google to other search providers such as Bing or Yahoo, but Google's had the default spot locked down for some time thanks to the handsome sum they've been paying Apple for the privilege. But Microsoft's Bing is the default search used in Siri, so count that as a win for Redmond. Yahoo isn't too happy that Google holds the crown jewel default search in Safari, and they're apparently aiming to convince Apple to change that.
