I'm not looking to start a flamewar. I've been trying to find out for a long time what the advantages and disadvantages over Gecko and webkit. I'm NOT referring to javascript performance because that's a separtate component. I've noticed a lot of developers seeeming to favor webkit over Gecko, including ones at Google, KDE, and Gnome, even though webkit is deveoloped by the evil Apple. Why? Is there something fundamentally wrong with Gecko? Is it harder to develop for? Is it inherrently slower because it's so much more powerful (instead of the more lightweight webkit)? I tried asking Mozilla and I got a political answer. I've asked elsewhere and they all talk about javascript performance, which is mostly unrelatted. Can someone give any real answers?
