    The reason Nokia is doing this is because they want Firefox in their mobile phones (they use Qt), not for KDE. Right now, Firefox 3.5 betas work with Qt, but they look like ass :P

    Maybe Nokia has no more interest in porting Firefox to Qt. They are for sure working in better alternatives for them, I would like to know which they are.

    Maybe because Opera is already in QT and supports many platforms.

    I think they will just end up using WebKit instead. On Gran Canaria Desktop Summit they announced that they are switching from GTK to Qt for their mobile platform. And since Qt already has WebKit integrated that's what they will end up with and it will probably be easier to write a browser interface using Qt+WebKit from scratch than port Firefox to Qt. Or maybe they will use some existing Qt browsers like Arora.
