Browse with caret allows keyboard users to select text from within a page. 
Only using the keyboard and hence is necessary for a11y. I talked with calum 
about this. He recommended either:
1. Always leave it on no pref.
2. Include a specific epiphany pref for, using the enable keyboard a11y pref 
from the control center isn't acceptable because it is dependent on xkb, as 
well as some user might just want the caret but not features such as bounce 
keys etc.
