    IE, using UIWebView, and similar code? Or is it different?

    If it's different, does anyone have a link to a tutorial to show the basics?

    Much much more powerful (you have access to the full DOM via Objective-C, for example). Basic usage is probably similar.

    Start with the class reference doc.

    There are 5 sample projects listed in Related sample code.

    Also be sure to scroll to the bottom of the left-side Table of Contents column, and read the Webkit Programming Guide.

    If you're looking for something that does a compare-and-contrast between WebView and UIWebView, or a "Mac WebView for iPhone UIWebView programmers", I don't think you'll find anything like that.

    I'm not so much dead-set on a compare/contrast, but just knowing where to start with it in OSX would be good. I have a good amount of experience with webviews in iOS, and hoped that it would translate directly into OS X coding.

    I'll check out the dev docs and go from there. Any other suggestions would be a big help as well. :)
