#30 Rendering ability

How do you rate rendering ability? I've not used Konq/KHTML much, but from what I've read it was primarily designed to be compatable with existing websites. Gecko was designed to be compatable with the standards, and so ignored things such as document.all (and kept a Mozilla doctype, which I think was a mistake).

Both philosophies have their merits, but I think the former is what Apple, as a commercial organization, needs most. The Mozilla project has already improved web standards, particularly amoung web developers, and this will only increase as mozilla gains in popularity. Hopefully mozilla will keep this attitude, and Apple/KDE will make sure they always have the standards on their minds while making it work with as many sites as possible.
