New MWP 5.2 and MITE 2.2 Features

* WebKit Browser - WebKit is the most widely used mobile browser and is embedded in both iPhone's iOS platform and Android phones. Keynote's use of the actual WebKit browser enables accurate performance monitoring for mobile websites. Keynote MWP provides performance measurement data on HTML5 sites that is native and faithful to how smartphone users actually experience the mobile Web.

* Touch Events - Mobile websites taking advantage of smartphone touchscreens allow end users to interact with content in ways generally not supported on the Web. With this release, MWP and MITE are both aware of touch events and provide Keynote customers with the ability to create scripts that mimic a human being actually performing gestures such as taps and swipes. Consequently, operations teams can now monitor the end user experience of tap and swipe gestures on today's leading smartphones.

* Global Infrastructure with Geo-location - The Geo-location API allows smartphones to take advantage of location aware services offered by mobile websites; examples include: downloading store locations on retail sites, finding restaurant lists on Yelp, checking-in on Facebook, seeing local ads on content sites and getting weather updates on Yahoo!

* HTML5's Local Storage - Local Storage is a great new technique Web developers are using to improve the mobile browsing experience. With this release, Keynote MITE supports HTML5 Local Storage giving testers the ability to verify that an entire mobile site has indeed been downloaded for offline browsing.
