Stainless is a multi-process browser for OS X inspired by Google Chrome. At this point, Stainless is really just a technology demo — a chance to show off the multi-processing technique its developers use in Hypercube.

Judging from Chromium's OS X Detailed Status page, the Mac version of Chrome will use a WebCore-rendered bitmap to pass between the browser and rendering processes. The strategy we use in Hypercube (and now Stainless) is far less ambitious, but a whole lot easier to do and, thus, available today for your downloading pleasure (for Leopard only, sorry).
