So Camino is no more?

demonstrates that there is a cost to users of high density displays when 
Webkit is used to display web content. What cannot be seen in the screenshot 
is that Chromium's behavior matches IE, Opera and Safari, which is that 
physical units don't actually exist except when physical display density is 
in fact 96 DPI. Gecko also matches that fixed 3:4 pt:px ratio, but provides a 
workaround through the proprietary mozmm unit that is unnecessary for KHTML 
to display physical units at their actual size whenever desktop DPI matches 
physical display DPI.

I vote stick to KHTML.
