Related project: Konqueror.
It would be nice to have Gecko Qt port as KPart in KDE.
Currently, for webdevelopers either GNOME nor KDE doesn't provide complete set of tools for website development (HTML, CSS(!!), JS, PHP, etc) - GNOME is lacking something like Quanta in Gtk, etc, and KDE is lacking only native Firefox support to test and debug/make css corrections with Firebug.
I think the best way to resolve this would be Gecko as KPart (if it would be possible to run Firebug on Konqueror then), so developer could test css/layout of website on three different rendering engines with one app.
Because all my clients for CSS layout/CMS implementations want to have their projects optimized mainly for Gecko, secondly for Internet Explorer 6/7 (i handle this with Wine), and sometimes Opera. Any of my heretofore clients even by himself was checking look of webpage that i've made on Safari - so for what i would optimize my projects for WebKit?
Sorry for double comment but i should add also some kind of conclusion to my last post.
Page owners doesn't bother about how their sites look in WebKit - for them only important is if webpages work in FF/IE, so CSS/layout "cutters" (how would be PSD cutting in english? :) ) and PHP coders also don't bother. It's only luck if most of the pages work good in Safari, so how anyone can call Webkit as good, universal and properly rendering engine when its working depends on luck ? ;)
