    One of the major questions here is how similar WebKit2s implementation is to Chrome's. The official announcement isn't very detailed on that. I've recently read, that several people of the Chrome project are working on WebKit. So, was this only Apple's idea, or did Google contribute. This would indeed be interesting.

    Must be a patent here somewhere for someone to sue someone for

    Does seem like that is true. Yet, I am unsure why. I have used Firefox and Chrome. Firefox is a more stable browser that is far more customizable. Chrome's in Beta and it shows especially in some Java sites.

    The sad part is that the things that Mozilla needs to change most (WebKit and support for codecs besides Ogg Theora), aren't going to happen any time soon. They will have to lose a lot more market share before they realise the stupidity of those moves.

    I am amazed that this situation has been allowed to go on so long. Countless times I have had a tab busy trying to FIND stuff to download and been unable to flip to another tab or scroll it in anything like a rational way.



    So looking forward to Webkit entering the 1980's in this regard. Maybe this is what comes from using architects who have only known desktops.



    Do what now?

    Weird that everyone talks about catching up to Chrome; yet no one mentions that IE, by far the most popular browser, did this first...

    I love FF. Fast enough. The address bar is awesome. Never have to use bookmarks again.
