KHTML project vs. Apple
Infoworld's Neil McAllister discusses some of the cultural differences within the open-source community as the KHTML project has offered several gripes with Apple's Safari web browser, which leverages the KHTML open-source code: "The open source community has rules, too, and these rules are laid out in the various licenses under which open source code is published. Although it may not always be the most cooperative company, everything Apple has done with KHTML code has been in compliance with the letter of the GNU LGPL (Lesser General Public License) -- a point no one has even tried to dispute." Earlier this month, one Apple developer proposed resolving compatibility conflicts in Safari by scrapping the KHTML rendering engine in favor of its own WebCore, which received support from Firefox lead engineer Ben Goodger, who said that "Safari's renderer is vastly superior to the KHTML used by Konqueror."

Just click a button to restore an application to it's original preferences - or save and install custom sets of preferences for the task at hand."
