Now I looked at the source of webkit2gtk and it seems that opengl 
support is compiled into the library or not, so if OPENGL is specified 
then it will call into and will crash. Maybe we should not lie 
about 3d support? What is the status of OpenGL support on the xo-1.75 
and xo-4? I have read the email about writing an open source driver for 
the xo-4 but does it imply that there is no official binary driver from 
Marvell? (I know that XO-1 and xo-1.5 will not support 3d.)

So I will stick to webkit1... On the other hand, going native is clearly 
the way to go, as it launches in 2-5 sec (usually ~3), while Browse 
launches in 13 sec on my xo-1.75...
