Evernote 4 for Windows uses CEF

Postby emerick » Tue Oct 26, 2010 4:30 pm

Just wanted to mention that Evernote 4 for Windows (released today) uses CEF. Back at the beginning of the year, we evaluated several different options and decided that CEF was the best way to embed WebKit in our Windows client. I'm happy to say we've been really happy with CEF's performance and features.

Our application uses CEF in several areas:

  • Our note editor uses CEF to present a contentEditable region where users can create/edit notes using WebKit's rich editing features.
  • Our "Trunk" window uses an embedded read-only CEF browser to present a view into our version of an app store.
  • Finally, our auto-updater uses an embedded browser to present the list of features / fixed bugs in a particular release.

We're currently using revision 82 of CEF, with some modifications (e.g., DOM manipulation support, contentEditable support, undo support, etc.)

Thanks to Marshall for creating CEF and thanks to everyone on the forum who helped me as I came up to speed with it. :-)
