Richard, Chet, Ben, and not Tor in the spacious London studio
In this Tor-less episode, Chet talks with Ben Murdoch and Richard Coles from the Android WebView team. We talk about WebView's ability to update outside of platform releases, the transition from the original WebView to the new Chromium WebView widget, about some of the new features and APIs in recent releases, and about cute kitten bitmaps.

Tor didn't have much to say, about kittens or anything else.
