Maybe you are misunderstood. I'm not that powerful to be able to be a developer. All of what I did as I described is I trying to build this browser on OI. Porting is the wrong word. My bad. It's such a too big word to be used. I'm currently stuck at libdazzle, a dependency of Epiphany. It seemed the problem is with a compiler flag is wrongly defined. It will fail to build with this flag on. But I have no knowledge with the Meson build system they are using, so I posted here asking anyone interested or have time please have a look at it.

This browser is fairly portable (at least it's what I think), so if we could get this libdazzle it's very likely we would get the browser, too.
