Chromium is based on chromium port of webkit, while epiphany uses
webkitgtk port of webkit. First, the webkitgtk we have in F12/13 is way
older (and even older than it should be [1]) than chromium in spot's
repo and second, there are things that are implemented differently in
the various ports so the "feature list" isn't same. I'm not sure but I
think F14 version of webkitgtk should be able to handle remote fonts.
