As a matter of fact, I'm not all that keen on native widgets in web pages. As far as style is concerned, there's no telling whether they will match the look and feel of the page. And I do hope they're still going to allow the web page to override via CSS, in which case native widgets are mostly for nothing. I'm not at all sure this was a feature worth putting effort into. It's pure eye-candy. I'm sure there are others more useful. I'd gladly give up native widgets for less consumed RAM or snappier startup when I have many extensions loaded.

Of course it should still be overridden by CSS. That's for sure. But there are many websites that don't theme widgets at all. Those ought to follow the native theme.

But widgets theme by websites should stay untouched. It looks really ugly otherwise (konqueror is a sinner here - it uses the colors from css on widgets from the KDE-theme in use - doesn't fit when playing online RPG ;) )
