    GTK3 *puke*

    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!

    They do care about external projects. For example, the recent changes done to support other desktop environments

    Firefox already uses GTK and if you want Wayland support, it is easier to migrate to GTK 3 than rewrite that part but in any case, a Qt frontend work is also in progress. So you will have more choices going forward regardless of the toolkit you prefer.

    As an Xfce user this is interesting to know.

    http://www.apple.com/ has a awesome toolkit. You could try that. Yes Firefox is supporting this toolkit.

    In theory FF can support all toolkits. In practice someone has to "port" for each toolkit. And noone cares enough to adapt FF for Qt EFL or whatever.

    He wouldn't accept reality: his skewed view on FOSS would be forever warped by a 25+ year foundation of frameworks dating back to 1989 NeXTSTEP 1.0 which has seen every single OS since blatantly rip it off, however poorly.

    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.
