KDE "We always knew that WebKit is going to make Konqueror fast; but how much faster? Today we test that by putting Konqueror with KHTML through the SunSpider JavaScript Test and the then do the same with WebKit. To get an idea of how fast they are compared to other browsers, we also decided to put Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 through the tests."

You behave as if you've read a different benchmark than me.
The benchmark I've read focused on the difference between KHTML and QtWebKit. Firefox was just thrown in to have a more mainstream browser as rough comparison in there. Nobody claimed "OMG QtWebKit is so fast, Firefox can never reach it".

It sounded like something unexpected:

Surprisingly Konqueror with WebKit is also faster than Firefox 4.0 Beta 2

If this was all about integrated JaegerMonkey - that would be interesting. Otherwise there is nothing surprising here.

Firefox is still not the focus of that benchmark. Konqueror with its two engine choices is.
