I am currently trying to use WebKit2 engine (GTK port) to implement a
full browser on linux, running on a dual core machine.

With Full implementation, I meant that the complete implementation of
that feature is pending. Similarly "partial implementation" means that
some features have been implemented while some are pending.

As you said that work is going on in all of the above modules. Can you
pls tell me what are the current action items ??
Is there any particular work being done on sandboxing like chrome ??

Thanks for being supportive.
