SeaMonkey isn't Firefox, yet it uses the same Necko and Gecko as the latest 
Firefox, and gets released concurrently with each FF version bump. Whether or 
not SM includes Firefox in its UA string is optional. So it seems there must 
be a way if there's enough will.

Since WebKit was started as a fork of KHTML by Apple, it seems the KDE 
developers must be backporting WebKit changes into KHTML in a cherry picking 
fashion, that is to say, leaving out parts that cause display density to be 
ignored, and whatever forces the 3:4 pt/px ratio. As "works" example, you can 
see in the screenshot that current KHTML includes web font support, and 
nominal rendering difference between Konq 4 and latest FF.
