Along the way, I noticed that Windows users had to download non-open source code to get webkit to build properly. I went on their IRC and talked to a few guys there.... one guy bfulgham is working on porting the webkit back to cairo
"bfulghamIm currently following their guide to build on Mac right now... but will try this cairo-windows soon.
mmullin: The port already exists, in that GTK+ is Cairo-based. I have heard rumblings that wxWindows may switch to Cairo due to problems they have had with the GDI code.
So it's mostly a matter of plugging into the existing Cairo framework. It's a great thing, because almost all necessary functions are in place, and as soon as the GTK guys add new functionality, the Windows port pretty much gets it for free.
Also, WebKit was originally Cairo-based on Windows, so there is useful historical information in the SVN archive."
