Apple Reportedly Files for Trademark on Webkit

A Webkit variant is also in the Palm WebOS that HP has such hopes for and another going into BlackBerry

CNET reports that Apple has filed for a trademark on the open source Webkit widgetry under its Safari browser; the same Webkit widgetry that Google - Apple's favorite sparing partner when it's not playing contact sports with Adobe - uses in its Chrome and Android browsers; the same Webkit that Google cites as the reason for Chrome's supposedly lightening speed.

A Webkit variant is also in the Palm WebOS that HP has such hopes for and another going into BlackBerry.

As CNET points out Webkit hails from the KDE side of Linux' house.
