Crosswalk is a web runtime for ambitious HTML5 applications which provides all the features of a modern browsers.
Many HTML5 applications need more than just a browser – they need all the features of a native application.
Crosswalk HTML5 app combined with deep device integration and an API for adding native extensions. It is especially suited to mobile devices, with support for both Android and Tizen.
At the heart of Crosswalk is the Blink rendering and layout engine. This provides the same HTML5 features and capabilities you would expect to find in most modern web browsers.
Building on Blink, Crosswalk uses Chromium features to provide a multi-process architecture, designed for security and performance, as well as state-of-the-art performance and graphics.
By using Crosswalk, an application developer can:
- Access the latest recommended and emerging web standards.
- Use experimental APIs not available in mainstream web browsers.
- Control the upgrade cycle of an application by distributing it with its own runtime.
- Add custom extensions to an application, to leverage platform features not exposed by Crosswalk or the standardized web platform.
