           Summary: [SOUP] Local files are not handled
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

Currently the soup backend is not able to load local files. Libsoup is just an
HTTP library, so it doesn't handle other protocols (see

It would be nice to support this using gio so it will be possible to support
also ftp and other protocols.

Note that WebKit depends on glib 2.0 and gio was added in glib 2.16 but this
should not be a problem because libsoup is already depending on glib 2.16.
