Re: [trinity-users] Plans on updating Konqueror?

The solution is Qt4's Webkit bindings wrapped into konqueror. I do not
know what effort this would take but it has been discussed at length
before. Probably the best solution. i've written a gtk wrapper for
webkit before and it was not very frustrating, but rather straight
forwards. I image Qt wrapper would be similar. However, I do not know
the state of TQt and Qt4, or much about how Konquerors plugin system
works so... maybe a better question for kb9vqf
