Hi folks,

I just found out about a new webkit port called "WebKitNix". It
looks like a better alternative to WebKitGTK+, using OpenGL for
rendering, and not requiring a UI toolkit.

Initial announcement: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.os.opendarwin.webkit.devel/24877/
Website: http://webkitnix.openbossa.org/
Code: https://github.com/WebKitNix

There's still plenty of suck, but definitely a good deal less than
WebKitGTK+, and it looks to be getting better.

It would be lovely to see surf switch to using this port at some
point. Perhaps I will have time to look into doing this, perhaps
not, we'll see.
