WebWorks plays the following roles in the platform software:

A WebView is a view, rendered by the web engine, in which an app is displayed. Each HTML5 app has its own WebView. Trusted apps are run "in process", sharing a web engine instance. Other apps are run "out of process", protected from each other by process boundaries, each with their own web engine instance.
