Since Steam detect WINE, I sure it may detect WINE Gecko too.

Unfortunately it's unclear whether Valve counts the OP's system as Windows XP 32-bit as it claims in the second line, or as Unknown.
Ah, thank you for clarifying. No idea what WINE Gecko is as opposed to WINE, but I assume 0.69% is the threshold that Valve uses to either depict a program or not.

Steam ships with CEF, the Chromium Embedded Framework, for all its web browser doodads
