Please file bug reports, be more concrete and attach images or
animations (gif,mng) to show the issue.

You are right. But instead of just copying all functions of WebView
my plan is/was to implement the bits that are required by
applications. So if an applications needs xyz feature, we take a look
at WebView and then consider how it should be mapped to Gtk+ and then

No, we are free to use Gdk-Pixbuf.It is not used yet, because the
decoders in WebKit work and we had other issues to solve. If you want
to use Gdk-pixbuf, feel free to send a patch.
Besides implementing a decoder for Gdk-Pixbuf you want to change the
MIMETypeRegistry to register the MimeType's of the supported image
formats. This code is in WebCore/platform/MIMETypeRegistry.cpp and
probably in WebCore/platform/gdk/MIMETypeRegistry.cpp.
