Should GNOME adopt a web browser component? If so, which one? Benjamin
Otte takes on this question with a detailed
look at Webkit and Mozilla
but comes to no clear conclusion.
"Regardless of which project were to be chosen, my expectation would
be that if we were to start now, it would take 5 experienced GNOME
developers roughly a year to get this work to a point were it would hold up
against today's requirements of the web. For Webkit, this would mostly
require writing source code. For Mozilla, both writing code and
evangelizing inside their community would be necessary.
