Thnaks Benjamin. 

looking at EFL and knowing that it shares code with WebkitGtk  means Im in the same spot :( my problem is meeting the dependency level to run webkitgtk in the latest version(opdating  gtk in a CentOS box can be a hellish task)

Tnaks anyways and thanks for your time

Best Regards
Victor Lucero.
