also seems to crash on my machine (MacBook Pro Intel, Leopard)

Though I have to admit that I am not experienced with using webkit from 
within python/qgis. But I sure will explore webkit in the future. It 
will be very interesting because of its SVG capabilities to display 
interactive graphics within QGIS (e.g. for diagrams, charts, reports, 
etc.). Compared to qts SVG it also supports Javascript for interactive SVGs.

I am happy to try again, if another test build is available.

Thank you for your work, William!
