Some great news for Framer from WWDC so far:

- Big Javascript performance improvements: https://www.webkit.org/blog/3362/introducing-the-webkit-ftl-jit/

- Javascript on mobile will now be fast outside of Safari too: http://9to5mac.com/2014/06/03/ios-8-webkit-changes-finally-allow-all-apps-to-have-the-same-performance-as-safari/

- WebKit2 will become available for developers with multi-process model and other improvements.

- WebGL will be enabled on mobile by default, we could add an GL-based backend to Framer in the future to allow advanced graphics stuff like custom shaders and meshes.

- The Swift programming language has a lot of similarities with CoffeeScript, which I've slowly started to push for Framer instead of Javascript. https://twitter.com/tolmasky/status/473536685985525761

- Some pretty handy additions to WebKit like srcset to automatically handle 2x images http://www.webkit.org/demos/srcset/

Especially #2 will be great for apps like Joshs Framer Viewer.

Maybe Framer for Swift should be separate port?

Super exciting stuff!

#2: I have a friend who hasn't switched to an iPhone almost solely because of this. He wants chrome on iOS to be as fast as mobile safari.
