Tried to use as my main web browser on several occasions. However WebKit is just to buggy and bloated. IIRC Chromium uses Google fork of WebKit. It works little bit better than Xombrero, Midori, and 10 other "browsers" based on non-forked version of WebKit but it is the same thing for me. The real problem is not the browser but the lack of diversity among rendering engines. We are more or less down to Gecko, WebKit, and perhaps KHTML if it is still alive. WebKit IIRC doesn't work n sparc64. It will be nice to see Dillo and in particular Netsurf which is in much better shape getting some love.
