Editorial "I used KDE as my primary desktop from 1996 through 2006, when I installed the GNOME version of Ubuntu and found that I liked it better than the KDE desktop I'd faced every morning for so many years. Last January, I got a new Dell Latitude D630 laptop and decided to install Kubuntu on it, but within a few weeks, I went back to GNOME. Does this mean GNOME is now a better desktop than KDE, or just that I have become so accustomed to GNOME that it's hard for me to give it up?"

"When you load up Gnome and then Firefox, and then put in a custom setting for Gnome for keyboard shortcuts or such, will Firefox adopt that change?


Are you saying that Firefox will do that in KDE? Epiphany is Gnome's browser. I use Epiphany and it works just fine with any site that works with Firefox. Gmail... Google Apps... My online banking.

Konqueror is a no go with all three of those... and more. I'd rather have the sites work than the custom keyboard shortcuts, any day. But with Epiphany, I have both. :-)

And when Epiphany moves to webkit, watch that disappear... ;)

Epiphany won't move to Webkit, it will add Webkit backend. Gecko one isn't going anywhere and, for example, Ubuntu just renamed epiphany-browser package to epiphany-gecko.
