Actually, Alex is right. Chromium has its own port of WebKit, different from Qt and GTK ports. Reasons for that include sandboxing, process separation, and little rendering differences (for example using the skia library). This might be possible to change in the future (a separate library to possibly avoid recompilations), but for now I'm not aware of any effort to do that (it's really non-trivial).

Thanks! Anyway, I guess that the WebKit part of the browser still takes the majority of the compile time. On 3/5/11 12:58 AM, Alex Alexander wrote:

It sounds like a possible option. We could then advertise those binpkgs on the project page, or make them semi-official. If you or someone else is interested in doing that, I second that effort. Paweł Hajdan, Jr.
