thank you!

so, there are two compositors will be used during the webkit running, a nested compositor and weston.

but ,what is the difference about the usage in webkitgtk ? did they in charge of differently on the  field?  for example, video rending or GUI rending are two parts of
the web application, is they are same on the two filed.?

thanks for your kindly support.
