Qt The dot reports on the new version of Qt, as discussed by Qt developers Simon Hausmann and Andreas Aardal Hanssen. Much optimizations have already gone in the 4.5 development tree, and more is to come. You can also expect many functional improvements to the WebKit webbrowser engine, graphical effects and a new animations API.

WebKit is a fine piece of code and a great engine. It actually puts Gecko to shame, as far as the code and engineering goes, and it easily matches Gecko for rendering accuracy and speed.

There is absolutely no reason that it shouldn't be included in Qt or anywhere else.

Is there any project attempting to combine an XUL browser frontend (that would work with firefox extensions) with a Webkit backend?

That could be interesting IMHO.

Webkit passes acid test 3.

Part of WebKit is already in Qt 4.4. As the port expands more support will be in Qt 4.5.

Are you thinking about WebKit or KHTML? You do realize that many browsers are switching their backends to Webkit or at least adding an optional Webkit rendering path because it is now an excellent rendering engine and its nightlies are very exciting especially with its new JavaScript engine and HTML 5 support. The only thing Gecko has that is better than Webkit is MathML. As far as I know Webkit has no MathML support currently.
