Hi Ying,

you might be looking for WebKit2, wich is a non-blocking API layer for 
WebKit and aims to make WebKit more suitable for multicore systems. It 
supports the split-process model and the thread model as well. The API 
is currently under development for the Mac and Windows ports of WebKit 
(Safari), and the Qt port also tries to keep pace with WebKit2 
development, but currently lags behind the Mac and Win versions a bit. 
There is a test browser called MiniBrowser, you can try it if you are 

You can find more information about WebKit2 at:
