At time of writing:

Unfortunately the current version (early 2015) of surf is built against the older webkit1 / webkitgtk2 API. There is a newer port git://quinq.eu.org/surf2 however it has some issues:

Blink AFAIK is not packaged by any distribution as yet. I don’t know why.

I’ve discovered the gst-omx optimised for smooth playback of videos on the Raspberry PI build of Webkit is only available against webkit2.
