Hi everybody

On macOS Ventura, it is now possible to inspect the web content of an RCP app with an integrated WebKit Browser from an external Safari Browser over the developer menu.

This is a nice feature that allows to debug and inspect an internal browser of a RCP app, but it is also a security/privacy risk.

There is a property that can control this feature. Unfortunately, it is not yet wrapped in the WebKit class. It would be nice to have it to allow the control of this feature by the developer of an app.

webView.isInspectable = true

Details are found in this article from Webkit:

As it is stated in the article, the default should be set to false, except the libraries are build for debugging, which seems to be the case. So having the control with the property is really needed.

Thanks for help / planing into a new eclipse version.
