Is there any reason to not use the GTK3 version of wxWidgets? Then you could
use a modern WebKitGTK version.

Another option, if you want an up-to-date web engine, could be using the WPE
port and making it render to a GtkGlArea, like the GTK4 support here does:


But instead of using GTK4, you could use the GTK2 version of GtkGlArea.
Note that if you go this route, you lose some of the platform integration,
so for example you will need to handle yourself the signals for showing
alert/file dialogs and a few other things. Depending on your needs, it
might be a good option to keep in mind.
