So what do you prefer about it? I think the firefox GTK connection is probably because of long standing licensing issues. Qt is commercial product developed and owned by a single entity, not an idea i like, even if there are safeguards in place. Pure Qt applications are generally unpleasant in X, just look at skype, KDE applications often behave strangely under other desktop environments, maybe that's another reason why GTK was chosen?

Fair comment. It's from a <personal_opinion> *cosmetic* point of view I prefer QT </personal_opinion>. That's interesting about the licensing though. So no chance for a version of Firefox built with QT?

If you're interested about the Firefox thing it's Firefox's (save/load) dialogues that bug me; they're always to small, hard to use etc. But thats running it under FreeBSD, I'm sure you Linux folk have that sorted ;)

Do you actually prefer Qt, or the KDE themed version of it? I.E, the poor imitation of various other L&Fs or KDE's one?

The Firefox save/load dialogues on Ubuntu 5.10 are fine for me, but i am using GNOME and firefox has the GNOME integration switched on.
