A WebPage corresponds to a WebView, but on the WebProcess side. The C
API exposes frames, but we have not exposed them in the GObject API
because we aren't sure if they will continue to be part of the
internal UIProcess API. That decision is really up to the Apple
developers -- who have said in the past they were thinking of ditching
them entirely.

I think what Niranjan is trying to accomplish should be possible with
a combination of user scripts (which can be injected into all frames)
and the injection of native JavaScript methods into the DOM. We hope
to add both of these things to a future release.
