Automotive web browsers and web application runtimes have specific needs, compared to platforms such as mobile, STB/TV, desktop and other embedded devices.

When building your own web middleware for an automotive platform, many different aspects need to be considered in order to define the right technologies, the architecture to be used, and a good strategy regarding the collaboration with open source projects and communities.

In this talk we will discuss those aspects, focusing specifically on WebKit and Chromium, the two main technologies that are being used to build and derive browsers and web runtimes.

We will review the alternatives and their status, describe the challenges, explain the functionality and performance, and show demos based on our work at Igalia developing and adapting browsers for automotive, in the context of AGL (Automotive Grade Linux) and GENIVI.
