As far as I know, WebKitGTK+ has not had direct support for embedding GTK+
widgets in web views since the move to WebKit2 (multi-process) years ago.

That being said, there is library called Maxwell [1] which uses offscreen GTK+
rendering and forwards events back and forth to achieve embedding of widgets
in HTML content.

I hope this helps :-)
