Original OSNews Interviews Lunascape5 Genesis is a feature rich browser that brings the best of everything in the browser world. It is the world's first triple engine browser that gives users the freedom to choose between Trident (IE engine), Gecko or Webkit. The beta version of the browser was released today and it is available for download from their official website.

KHTML only at this time.

There's been hints floating around the web that they may make a KPart out of WebKit such that you could switch between KHTML and WebKit, but I have no idea if that is actually happening.


Actually there is a webkit kpart, which can be used in konqueror: http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/playground/libs/webkitkde/
I tried it with KDE trunk and it seams to work reasonably well.

There are also several projects to build a stand-alone browser for KDE, just like dolphin: Foxkit (http://code.google.com/p/foxkit/), Arora (http://code.google.com/p/arora/) and rekonq (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/rekonq+Web+Browser?content...).
