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.

From what I understand, you can create a full blown, history, bookmarks, back, forward, stop, refresh webkit browser with 100 lines of code in Qt. They have made it trivial to create a Qt browser. Why port Mozilla to this platform?


so that no matter what web stack you choose (for whatever reason) you can still decide to use Qt. Nokia is evidently working on making Qt a viable option everywhere.
