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."

I'm not sure i understand your point.

The KHTML devs split in half a while ago - half continued development on it, while insisting that Apple and Webkit were evil and not integrated into KDE well enough to replace khtml.

The other half went to work for Trolltech integrating Webkit into Qt. Eventually, those same people, along with a few others from the community that were trying to use Webkit in their projects, finished the integration work with Webkit/KDE.
