Blink is providing 4D web area with several benefits:
- Internally runs in multi-process
- Support for Retina displays
- Same rendering and behavior on macOs and Windows
Switching to Blink
The switch to the Blink framework requires no code change for your application and has strictly no impact in the Web area usages; all commands and events for embedded Web Areas work the same as before, except few preferences which are not supported and are ignored. Just note that moving to Blink may introduce a few minor behavior differences as if you were displaying your web page using different browsers.
HTML 5 Support
Compare by yourself: The online tool HTML5test allows to see how well the browser used supports the HTML5 standard. While the versions using WebKit scores 352 points, 4D v16 64-bit using Blink reaches 492 points!
For more details about the new rendering engine for embedded Web Area, please refer to the “Using Blink” section of the Web Area article in doc center.
