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."

firefox does not actually look bad
the article in question used firefox just because it makes it more "newsworthy" to talk of firefox

firefox is not the fastest in javascript at all, albeit they're working on it, i can't feel anything going "slow" in real life, except the initial startup.
html rendering itself is extremely competitive

Indeed it doesn't. That's why I responded to the poster: there just is no need to jump to Firefox's defence like that. People just wanted to see how Konq-webkit compares to recent development version of Firefox and they did, nothing else. There is absolutely nothing wrong with comparing something current against another current thing, just do another comparison later on if you ain't satisfied with the current results.
