The GTK port doesn't offer much control over the webkit widget.  If you
want to do really cool stuff you would need to have some DOM bindings in

AFAIK the GTK folks are working on bindings for GObject.  One could try
to use this as a base for elisp bindings.  But I would think it's far
more efficient (runtime and devel time) and more fun to just stick with
JS.  But if you do that you can just write a stand alone app in the
first place...  Just my 2 ยข.
