Saw the latest port from safari 2.0 to gtk-webcore and compiled kazehakase-0.4.5 with this engine built in.

Though it crashed a few times on me I guess it's still experimental stage but not too bad. =)

Even when launching for the first time this launched in less than 0.5 of a second. I have compiled it with only webcore engine support though.

Is the gtk-webcore project actually being actively developed? Seemed like a dead project to me.

what is significant is that this browser takes a fraction of a second to start and people are expermienting additng suport for webcore engine in Epiphany Browser instead of using slow Gecko.
