Syllable, AtheOS Syllable 0.6.4 has been released. "Syllable 0.6.4 contains many new features, enhancements and bug fixes from previous releases. Highlights of this release include a new version of ABrowse; the web browser has been re-written using the WebKit engine. A new version of Whisper, and the Contact address book is now included. A large number of usability and user interface fixes, largely curtesy of Anthony Morphett. New drivers for the SysKonnect Yukon1 network cards & ACPI CPU management and updated drivers for Radeon, GeForceFX, SiS and Trident video cards, HD Audio, Intel & VIA SATA controllers and Realtek 8169 network cards. The usual clutch of bug fixes and enhancements."

"So I assume you feel as though Safari and Konqueror should also be dropped in favor of Firefox? They are KHTML based too. In fact, the iPhone should immediately drop iSafari and move to Gecko too. Right?"

You obviously didn't read my post. I think comparing the resources of Apple and Syllable is kinda lame.

Exactly!
Apple got the resources to maintain a port of Firefox. We don't!

Yes, Apple have far more developers, time and money than we do. Which is good for us, because we get to use the result of their work in ABrowse. So we don't need the same amount of developers, time and money.

Have you applied for a account to webkit.org's SNV? Maybe you could send the patches for the Syllable port to them? (If you didn't do that already.)

So do I!! That is precisely why I'm making fun of you, because that's what you're doing -- who do you think maintains Webkit?
