Qt After many months of designing, coding, reviewing, testing and documenting, Qt 4.7.0 is finally ready for the big time. Although it's a little more than nine months since Qt's last feature release (4.6.0 on December 1, 2009), the seeds of some of the new stuff in 4.7 were sown much earlier. Indeed, many of the ideas behind the biggest new feature in Qt 4.7.0, Qt Quick, were born more than two years ago, not long after Qt 4.4 was released

rekonq uses qtwebkit(ships with qt) and it is very crash happy. Hope the crashes are coming from qtwebkit and they are fixed in this release. I like the browser but i switched back to firefox because it was crashing waaay too often.

webkit is mature code. rekonq is development code. In the upcoming Kubuntu 10.10 (maverick meercat), rekonq has been made the default browser, even though it is only version 0.6.

Happily this version is far more stable than earlier versions, but be warned (as the version number should tell you), this is still development code, it is not yet stable.

Given that qtwebkit is mature code, and also given that rekonq isn't mature code, one would presume that any crashes you are experiencing are more likely to be due to reconq that to be due to qtwebkit.
