Mozilla & Gecko clones I've seen superlative after superlative concerning the release of Firefox 3.0, and in all honesty, it is making my stomach ache. Yes, Firefox 3.0 is a great release. It has a slicker interface (the UI on Vista looks quite pretty) and the use of native widgets in Linux is a very, very welcome addition. On top of that, it actually delivers what I was craving for the most from my favourite Windows web browser: much improved performance. But does Firefox 3.0 change the web, or alter the way we use the intertubes?

firefox 3 has native look in windows ..windows xp looks different from windows vista so it has two look in windows ..

on the linux side, most people either use kde or gnome(i personally prefer fluxbox windows manager but all apps are kde) .. anyway, in the linux world ..there are two toolkits(among others) and firefox looks native on gtk based systems like gnome desktop environment and there is no change on kde side(i havent seen any so far)

saying firefox3 looks native on linux is almost an insult to kde users ..

how long will we have to wait before we get kde integration on firefox?


Perhaps the best approach is to get gtk+ integration into KDE ...

I think the trick is to use something called 'qtcurve-gtk2'.
