What about EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Libraries) Webkit? It isn't so
feature rich as Chromium or Webkit-gtk, but it's getting there with
Samsung pumping money.

There are some desired features [1] on their roadmap, which seems
- Remove strict X11 dependency, allowing DirectFB and FB at least;
- Less dependency on GNOME technologies, maybe remove Cairo and LibSoup
(the last one is already optional).

EFL Webkit is based on gtk port, so most API is probably the same. Main
problem is EFL moving very fast, but you can say the same about
most Webkits in some degree.

I didn't evaluate EFL Webkit myself, so I can be utterly wrong. EFL
Webkit snapshots are build every week [2].
