I've updated my Mac OS X browser comparison to cover the current OS X GUI browsers (excluding the experimental Phoenix and Beonex builds and wKiosk)."

Does anybody feel it?

David Hyatt, in his weblog compares the method calls in KHTML and Gecko, stating that "The upshot, and this cannot be stated clearly enough, is that there are only a handful of people who are even capable of modifying Gecko, because the code is so unreadable and so complex."

So Netscape dumped its code in 1998 because it was too complex to modify it. So now ended with another mess of code that is impossible to modify.
