Mozilla & Gecko clones The Mozilla and Nokia teams have been working hard to port Firefox 3 and the Mozilla Platform to Qt and there are now some solid results available from their efforts. An experimental build of Firefox Qt is available and you can download the sources from Mozilla's mercurial repository. The plan is to merge the Qt branch into the central Mozilla branch to make the port official.

Does anyone remember the days when Netscape released Mozilla as open source and the first thing some hackers did, was to port it to Qt? Took several nights and large amount of coffee, but it was a sensation at these times :-)

Here is the press-release from TrollTech http://trolltech.com/company/newsroom/announcements/00000007

I think the current Qt port is about the 4th attempt. I don't believe that it will be successful this time until I see a release version shipping.
