     5The GTK+ port of WebKit is intended to provide a browser component for the portable [http://www.gtk.org/ Gtk+] UI toolkit. WebKitGTK+ is developed within the official WebKit SVN, so the codebase is unrelated to the classic [http://gtk-webcore.sourceforge.net/ Gtk+ WebCore], but WebKit GKT+ has superseded Gtk+ WebCore. The [http://build.webkit.org/ WebKit Buildbot] provides continuous build and layouts tests. A [wiki:StableGTK semi-stable] branch exists to evaluate how to handle issues such as stability, and security support.
