Comment (by pierre.labastie):

 According to [https://blogs.gnome.org/mcatanzaro/2016/02/01/on-webkit-
 security-updates/ this] blogpost, webkitgtk+-2.4 should not be used for
 web browsing. I think I've found that Midori can use the webkit2gtk-4.0
 API (that is webkitgtk+-2.8.10) by passing ''-DHALF_BRO_INCOMP_WEBKIT2'',
 but the name of the switch looks scarry! On the other hand, browsing the
 web with insecure browsers is scarry too... ANyway, I'll test midori with
 this switch, and report here.
