KDE "We always knew that WebKit is going to make Konqueror fast; but how much faster? Today we test that by putting Konqueror with KHTML through the SunSpider JavaScript Test and the then do the same with WebKit. To get an idea of how fast they are compared to other browsers, we also decided to put Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 through the tests."

Back in KDE3 days, KHTML was the best OSS rendering engine around. It was the second browser to get 100% ACID2, long before any other one. Code was backported from pre-webkit safari dumps and it was working with all websites. It is not the case anymore, the web is more complex and evolving faster than it was. You have to give credit to kHTML instead of bashing it, it's days are over, but it was an OSS masterpiece.
