Hi Meryl,

Here's a blog post that might clear up some of the confusion: http://webkit.org/blog/101/

The debugging page shows you how to debug your version of WebKit, from  
svn, with the standard shipping version of Safari on OSX.  Since  
WebKit is not an application itself, you need to run some application  
to load and debug WebKit.  Any application that uses WebKit will  
work.  Safari is just one example.
