- FOSS (Free Open Source)
- Blazing fast to start
- Much faster updates / synch with latest webkit tech
- No need to deal with C++ , very easy to setup etc.
- Big plus: Full power of node.JS so you have full local disk access , so you can make editors with it, open and save file dialogs etc. And on top of that you can access native functions via C++ plugins.
I can say because i'm already using it.
And so on. I think it's safe to at least try it and compare it side by side with Awesomium :)
