I would also include Crank Software's Storyboard in that list.

- Storyboard (http://www.cranksoftware.com/storyboard)

Storyboard provides native support for QNX graphic frameworks (photon,
agtdk, opengles) and also provides an off the shelf WebKit solution for 
QNX (and Linux) platforms.

As a side note, Crank did the original WebKit port to QNX that you may 
be using.
