Thanks for the reply. What you saying is that there is no clean way to do it in WebKit itself, I will have to go to the platform specific code to do it.

Are you talking about Rendered buffer? It is graphics library specific. From which layer you wanted to access? Each WebKit port(qt,gtk,chromium,efl,wx,mac) has their own API exposed to the app developers. Incase of Qt QWebView is a QWidget and you can use 
to get the rendered buffer as QPixmap object. In GTK port you can get the Cairo context and copy it to the Cairo_image_t(pixman backed Cairo surface).
