I can't add more than this link:

We are getting chrome based webview in android 4.4!

I'm going to say "bye" to this because they don't enable in following features:

-WebGL 3D canvas
-WebRTC
-WebAudio
-Fullscreen API

It's a step in the right direction and for the purposes of Construct this paired with phonegap will be better than the DOMless solutions we have now. I for one am very excited about this..

It's definitely a step in the right direction. Hopefully a future update will enable WebGL and WebAudio, then we're in business... once everyone updates to Android 4.4, which could take some time!

@andrewo - the Chrome webview in 4.4 is very slow and misses several features, but from what I've seen it will be fast and have all those features back in the next version of Android, so it should be improved soon. In the mean time Crosswalk already does everything an improved web view would!
