I've been sort-of pondering that. MacOS also uses WebKit, Apple being the principal WebKit developers, and the latest Edge browser from Microsoft is built on Chromium which is pretty much WebKit with a different Javascript interpreter. The trick for both Windows and MacOS will be to get the rendered page drawn on a cairo surface to pass to GtkDrawingArea.
