Qt It's a rather unclear time over at Nokia in Espoo (Finland!), with people coming and going, and changes in development strategy. The latest one is, I think, a good one: Nokia has stated it will commit fully to Qt as the sole application development framework for both Symbian and MeeGo.

Woh guys! I didn't think there would be a huge debate about it.

I should've just said that Qt doesn't have a decent web browser. And, Yes, Firefox clearly uses Gtk+ for somethings, though they are working on a Qt version. Anyways, I use Chrome.

Given how much of my computer use consists of me surfing the internet, it means a lot for my browser to mesh with my desktop and other apps.

This goes beyond just the bland looking theme. It's the dialogs. Ever save a file in Firefox; then try to find it again in Dolphin/Konqueror?

You might have shortcuts to help you on Dolphin but they will be nowhere in the dialog because it's not using Dolphin's setting it's using Nautilus'. The same goes for importing, exporting, and saving a page or target.

None of this even touches the reduced performance you get using more than one toolkit at a time.
