Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has already done a lot to clean up the user interface of its successful web browser, but it would seem they're not yet done. As someone who finds the current interface a little... Chaotic and distracting, I'm quite happy with the changes they're currently proposing. They basically pointed at Chrome and said "pretty much that".

It's time for Firefox to ditch Gecko and welcome WebKit for its layout engine.


Since significant parts of Mozilla's technology stack are dependent on Gecko (such as XUL) trying rewrite it to accommodate WebKit would certainly put Mozilla out of the browser business as it would tie large parts of their resources for several years. I'm glad that Mozilla never truly considered such poisonous advices from false friends.

Plus, according to a Mozilla developer even WebKit people are interested in having multiple engines implementing the standards.
