Actually, you can also use Qt under the QPL ;) So that's wrong too ;) [/i]

Which includes another clause in it - ultimately, I think the decision by Mozilla developers came down to technical and pragmatic reasons rather than it being an issue of licences; if they really wanted to use Qt, there was nothing stopping them from paying for a special licence from Trolltech as to allow them to use it - think about it; Mozilla, small company called Trolltech; software title with a high profile, I don't know about you, but it would have been cheap publicity for their product.

The source code to Mozilla may be released under the GPL, but official binary builds from are not. Read the EULA that accompanies it ;)

Who said anything about the EULA? we're talking about source code, not final product.
