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?

Although I've just gone over to Firefox because of this new release(from Opera), I must say that WebKit is really on the front og renderingengines.

That being said: Opera's engine is very good as well, but Opera is neither open source and doesen't intergrate very well with my GNOME-de.

Looking forward to WebKit-based Epiphany though! I think that could evolve into a real killer-app. ;)

I've been using epiphany, iceweasel and konqueror much more, plus since opera 9.5 has been released on amd64 it's allowed me to have one less use for the ia32 libs.
