I'm Mirek and I'm a software engineer at Samsung Poland R&D Center.
My team is also involved in the WebKit-EFL port development. I've been personally working with Gustavo and Rafael from ProFUSION and I think it has been a productive cooperation so far.

We believe that the EFL platform has a great potential so naturally we have a deep interest in improving the WebKit-EFL port in terms of feature coverage, performance and stability. We are going not only to develop the port but also support incoming bugs and issues. Please contact me in such cases.
