[webkit-gtk] WebKitGTK+ VS Apple WebKit

I don't think Arch is missing build flags (in fact I strongly encourage
using the defaults), I think it just needs more investigation. WebKit
does support CustomElementRegistry and customElements.define, so I'd be
interested to know why it's not detected. It could be a WebKit bug, or
it could be an html5test bug.

Fixing platform-specific bugs, improving overall robustness and
security, API improvements needed for desktop applications, performance
in embedded and resource-constrained devices, WebRTC, and whatever
customers are paying us to work on. That's already a lot and we don't
have time for much more than that. We mostly leave web-facing feature
development to Apple because they are rich and we're not, and they're
doing a quite good job of it for us already IMO. When there are
platform-specific bits needed to make a feature work on Linux, we're of
course interested in filling those in when we find time.
