AIR uses WebKit as its HTML rendering engine, which is to say that WebKit translates HTML code into the result you see in a Web browser (for example, turning word into word). WebKit also handles the JavaScript, Document Object Model (DOM), and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). The use of a single rendering engine is one of Adobe AIR’s best features. Every Web browser uses one rendering engine or another, but not often the same one. This is why different browsers give slightly or even drastically different results with the same HTML, CSS, or JavaScript.
