A while ago I blogged that I left Firefox for Rekonq. Sadly that didn’t last long because Flash keeps causing crashes.
So for a while I used Konqueror in KHTML mode. While Flash didn’t crash there, it did other weird stuff such as painting over the toolbar when during scrolling.
So I tried Chromium… gosh, that GUI is really unbearable when using under a KDE environment.
Then I went back to Firefox but being so fed up with FF3, I tried FF4. To my surprise at least its performance was immensely improved. The GUI however was not. Well, at least I could restore most functionality (status bar via an extension, real stop/reload button via rearranging). Thanks to SUSE’s KMozillaHelper application I also have some Plasma Workspace integration but FF3 had that as well, so no news there.
When I’ve read yesterday that a Qt version of Firefox is now available, I decided to try it. After all, the screenshots on that website didn’t look so bad, right?
Well, time to put them into a KDE perspective:
There you have it: Don’t bee too exited, yet. FF-Qt still has a long way to go.
I just made the mistake to scroll in one web site. Half the page turned white.
