GTK+ is a graphics toolkit for developing native applications, not a
web sites. It's not possible to use GTK+ widgets in web sites.

WebKitGTK+ is a web engine that allows embedding web views in native
GTK+ applications. We use GTK+ to display standard HTML widgets. Unless
you are using a web browser based on WebKitGTK+, like Epiphany or
Midori, then you aren't interested in us. :)
