Who we are: Igalia are active participants in ECMA, W3C and WHATWG and are very significant contributors on all of the browser engines and Web Platform Tests, as well as some downstream browsers. We are also the maintainers of 2 of the official WebKit ports for Linux: WebKitGtk+ is the engine Epiphany (now named as Web) is built on top of, and its the browser shipped by default in various linux Desktop distros; we are also the creators of WPE, a WebKit port optimized for embedded devices.
