Sorry about the confusion, I thought I remember reading about a gecko-based 
browser for KDE, and I assumed it was Kmeleon. And yes, I know which is the 
default browser for KDE, my point was that if you want to a browser based on 
Mozilla technology for your desktop, you don't have to use the Mozilla apps, 
especially when their design doesn't necessarily fit the desktop(s) philosophy.

In other words, if I use Gnome, I want a gnome app for browsing (using
Gecko), if I use KDE, I'll like a KDE app for browsing (using Gecko)

Then again:
a) this is only relevant for defaults, since they are mostly used by new
b) this is my opinion
