Default [Feature Request] Classic WebView

Hello,
Can you bring back support for classic webview (webkit)? I know Omni Devs supports only high-ends devices but there are many other people who compile OmniRom for a bit older devices. And some devices can't realy hande new chromium webview.

For example on my Xperia J default browser is laggy and crashes. With classic webview device runs like a charm but for example can't use gapps.

Also chromium webview has bugs: (found in the internet)
text wrap no longer works
cannot upload files
cannot save passwords
cannot force enable zoom
no inverted rendering
cannot play Flash videos (broken in 4.3 too)

Me and maany other devs would be grateful if you consider that.

Stock browser is basically obsolete. Google switched to new WebKit but abandoned stock browser and didn't update it to support new WebKit. If you are having issues with none stock browser, then its a different issue.
