Hmm
I thought that Google Chrome is based on Webkit...

Google Chrome is based on Webkit with a brand new custom Javascript engine.

While there certainly is a VERY distant possibility of seeing a Webkit based version of Avant/Orca, I highly doubt it would come anytime relatively soon. Anderson has enough on his plate right now to even consider that possibility.
