Hi there,

Harmattan comes with two webkit libraries. The Qt4.x / WebKit1 version
which is part of the framework and a specialized version (based on WebKit2)
only available for the browser. It is possible to run WebKit2 on Harmattan
but it requires Qt 5.x. The team behind the snowshoe.cc browser are
packaging Qt 5 packages for Harmattan and hang around in #qtwebkit and
#showshoe on freenode.net.
