The support for network protocols is largely independent from WebKit, we 
use the networking stack of the system. The engine builds requests and 
asks the network stack to perform them, then we receive the response and 
handle the data. The detail of each protocol is handled by the network 
stack itself.

On OS X and iOS, the networking stack is integrated directly in the OS.
