    I guess you don't know what Qt is or you confuse it with KDE - the developer decides how many buttons and configurations he makes, not the toolkit.

      Accept reality, okay - it's an Apple fanboy!

      That has nothing to do with Apple, it's about Linux - or does MacOSX use Wayland? I don't think so!

      Back to topic, that's why I don't want GTK3: http://www.directupload.net/file/d/3...slenvm_jpg.htm

      It's ugly, it wastes screen space. Pass.

        You must be confusing different things. Qt is a set of libraries, they don't have an UI themselves.

        Developers building Qt can decide certain option at configuration times, a technique usually referred to as build-options.
        Users of applications built with Qt can influence certain features by setting environment variables before launching the application.

        Developers creating applications might expose configuration options in their applications' UI, but that is obviously independent of the library being used.

        Cheers,

          I hope they will face the same issues like Audacious and port to Qt. I would prefer even Lynx over a GTK3-Firefox. Gnome team doesn't care about external projects, so I don't care about them!
          Let Mozilla and Collabora discover their mistake by themselves.

            Why should they port to qt. It is suicide for them to use it in mac and windows environment. The port has only use in linux. And Qt still has very small market share in linux. Maybe Canonical can change that in a few years, but this has still not happened. In a gtk environment qt is able to (somewhat) integrate with a soon deprecated gtk2. Before Canonical release a usable desktop version of unity it is a idiotic project to waste money at.
            Cocoa is at lest used with a platform with a "measurable" market share.

              Are you aware that KDE apps use Qt? Maybe Qt is not more used than Gtk+, I don't know, but for sure it doesn't have a "very small market share in linux".

                It is about Linux, not about Windows or OSX. Both Windows and OSX are not affected with the GTK3 port, nor would they be affected by a port to Qt. By the way, the most used desktop on Linux is KDE - which is based on Qt. I'm not sure, but Canonical's Unity 8 will be based on Qt, I think (Unity2D was, that's for sure). Then there is LXQt, the successor of LXDE and RazorQt and there are some other small desktops based on Qt. All in all, Qt has the highest market share on Linux, I think.

                Even if this is not correct: Qt integrates really good in every desktop, GTK3 does not. CSD, anyone?

                  Projects are abandoning GTK left and right in favor of Qt because GTK3 is so bad. GTK2 was popular, GTK3 is not.

                    Firefox nightly are now built with GTK3 support enabled by default.
