I think more important than the form the sources are hosted (git or tarball) 
is if the program is to be considered stable. To me a program is stable if 
new versions do only deliver bug fixes and minor improvements. I think this 
is the case here. So I would prefer to use the PKGBUILD in AUR over a 
to-be-written PKGBUILD for some tarball version, also because the former 
is the one which has 427 votes.

BTW, interesting project. I personally prefer conkeror, but uzbl has an 
promissing concept.
