Certainly on Windows, Linux, and Android: Chrome is not Webkit any more
and the level of divergence is now reasonably large.  We should
re-evaluate whether we treat these as independent implementations in
terms of test suite passes.

(On OSX and iOS Chrome is indeed Apple's Safari Webkit because no
other web engine is allowed on those locked-down platforms).
