If Qt is the way to support Windows, it would need some work to make it easy to integrate into an existing non-Qt Windows application. From memory, that isn't the easiest thing in the world to do.

Considering Safari 6 is Mac only, and the departing of Chromium (the defacto Windows WebKit browser until yesterday) what is the current status of the Windows port?

The webkit.org<http://webkit.org> instructions still reference Visual Studio 2005 for instance

We should update that!

Any interest in making it a first class citizen again so that Windows users can potentially have a official WebKit(2) browser and application developers have a more or less officially supported library that isn't Chromium based?

There is one: Qt.
The Qt port uses WebKit2 and supports Windows :)

I would prefer seeing more work on existing stable ports to make them better rather than spreading the effort on a new port.
