Also, note that WebKitGTK+ by itself provides a GObject-based API
that is designed to be used from C. It also includes support for
using it from other languages like JavaScript and Python by means
of GObject-Introspection [1].

In the case of C#, you would need to use a library that provides
a C# API that wraps the C one, like webkit-sharp [2].

In GNU/Linux the easiest way of developing your application would
be to use a distribution that includes packages for WebKitGTK+ and
webkit-sharp in its repositories. I am aware of Debian and Arch
providing pre-built packages for both.
