Mozilla & Gecko clones I've seen superlative after superlative concerning the release of Firefox 3.0, and in all honesty, it is making my stomach ache. Yes, Firefox 3.0 is a great release. It has a slicker interface (the UI on Vista looks quite pretty) and the use of native widgets in Linux is a very, very welcome addition. On top of that, it actually delivers what I was craving for the most from my favourite Windows web browser: much improved performance. But does Firefox 3.0 change the web, or alter the way we use the intertubes?

Horrendous on KDE3

FF3 looks like crap on KDE3 while FF2 has all fine. A huge KDE user base makes use gtk-qt engine but FF3 simple can't get along with it.

Mozilla plain ignored KDE users this time.

Just to give you a demonstration of current drama who is using FF3 on KDE3 with gtk-qt engine enabled (polyester theme on KDE):

Now, take a look on FF2, all fine with it under the same settings:

I tried other themes as well, but gtk-qt are unable to fix the look and feel of FF3. The sole way to make it barely usable is disabling gtk-qt, with make every single GTK app on KDE looks alien unless you match the QT and GTK themes.

Just use QtCurve. It's a nice theme for both GTK+ and Qt.
