Damn! I can't get it to swap on this Fedora 24 laptop with webkitgtk4-2.14.1-1.fc24.x86_64. It used to happen very predictably with the same version, and both my laptops used to be very similar memory-wise - 8G RAM, no swap partition.

Maybe I just need to go back to using Ephy by default to trigger it again. (I have temporarily switched to Firefox.)
