I was always using liferea until it became a khtml bloatfest and hard to compile. (always a good indicator to stop using a project)
I'm now using the seamonkey builtin reader to fullest satisfaction.

Since when liferea is linked against khtml?

It isn't, it is linked against Webkit, as are most Gnome HTML-parsing apps these days.

I don't really see the negative in that. I actually want my feed reader to fetch the full website/page/blog instead of showing the feed content. And I like integration of content like video or text files or whatever to work properly... eg I loved when I clicked a link to a source code file in a blog and it opened in a tab, fully syntax-highlighted ;-)
Or clicking a video link and having it open in a tab & play with the embedded player-of-choice. Etc.

Keeps my desktop from having a mess of windows open... Focus, focus ;-)

It is certainly much better then the Mozilla-based renderer that Liferea used previously... which is vastly preferable to the GTKHTML or whatever that was a earlier failed fork of KHTML.
