Sounds like the whole perf thing is not as clear-cut in that comparison as it is when comparing Safari to Chimera (off the 1.0 branch) or Netscape 7 (1.0 branch) on a broadband in-lab connection... ;)"

Yeah, that too. And I can't say that we have higher quality developers than KHTML does.

There's also the minor caveat that KHTML can use any Mozilla code it wants whereas the reverse is not true..... Safari includes a couple of chunks of code that were very heavily based on the corresponding Mozilla code, for example.
