Thanks for the reply. I have been looking into the linked example,
however from the example it seems that I have to put my extensions in
a directory and point webkit to load them from there, but I cannot
figure out the format in which the extensions should be.

Is there no other examples? Or can anymore provide a simple example
that I can extend?
