I don't think Gecko is the better engine. As a foreign language speaker, it has several issues rendering Unicode properly (take a look at their bug posts). KHTML is very tightly integrated with Qt rendering. I am quite disappointed with this since Pango is one of the best technologies out their for multi-linguale enablement and while Firefox can be compiled/made to use it, its layout output does not seem to properly made use of by the firefox display engine. A native Gtk based HTML rendering engine would be much better.
