Yep, to simply test it, you can build WebKit as normal against Qt4, then in
the same terminal write
to run it, or
to check if it picks up the right version of libQtWebKit.
It might be hard to otherwise tell a new version is actually used, since the
new features added are rarely used on the web, and improved performance can be
hard to tell by eye.
