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.

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.
