Considering the F11 builds, currently webkit is already available.

I add various packages to the builds I install, in order to be able to
run selected non-Sugar applications.  For a long time, webkit
dependencies were among the packages I was adding.  But in both os108
and os11, those packages have been included in the build itself.

To try out the Webkit backend, use 'yum install midori'.  Surf-106.xo
also uses the Webkit backend (though Surf has only limited function).


To me, midori appears equivalent to Browse in rendering - but its header
lines take more room on my XO screen than the Browse header lines.
