Hi,

I'm trying to embed a WebKit browser in my app. I insist on WebKit,
because I don't want to test my HTML5/CSS/Javascript with every browser
that the SWT Browser widget supports.

I saw WebKit is used by default on the Mac, and can be used on Linux
with WebKitGTK+ as well. Can I also WebKit renderer on Windows? If not,
are there alternatives?

TIA,
J.-P.

Hi,

The Browser cannot currently use WebKit on win32, the existing request for
this is https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=220098 .

The only alternative I can suggest in order to get native renderer
consistency is to use Mozilla instead since it is supported on win32, linux,
solaris and OS X. For info about this see
http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#howusemozilla .
