Mozilla & Gecko clones The Mozilla and Nokia teams have been working hard to port Firefox 3 and the Mozilla Platform to Qt and there are now some solid results available from their efforts. An experimental build of Firefox Qt is available and you can download the sources from Mozilla's mercurial repository. The plan is to merge the Qt branch into the central Mozilla branch to make the port official.

This is the primary reason why majority of commercial and Open Source project goes with GTK or WxWindows and not QT.


where, exactly, are you getting your data from? because the numbers i have show a lot more commercial Qt apps out there than Gtk+ apps, and scads of open source projects.

if you're comparing the apps that commonly come to mind to linux desktop users, e.g. "vm ware, acrobat and firefox" vs "google earth and skype", i can understand how you might come to this perception.

but the reality is that Qt is use a lot more than Gtk is in industry.
