Macworld has provided a nice insight on improvements brought in by Apple engineers in Safari in iOS 8. Article can be read at here.
Macworld has posted a nice video about how developers feel about a new open Apple. I do believe that by opening up ecosystem, Apple is widening its control over the app economy and hardware market.
