webkit is basically css properties specific to the chrome/safari browsers rendering engine.

There is a couple of these prefix's for css properties each one basically targets individual browser types.

From my understanding these are not as important with modern browsers but still hold some value where older browsers are still in use.

To add onto your answer, you can also refer to Can I Use which is a fantastic resource when unsure of browser support for CSS properties. Any properties that may require a vendor prefix will have a small yellow box with a minus symbol in it.
