Thanks for that information Marc. Being that you worked for Next and Apple, I'll take your word on this and have removed the reference to KDE. I appreciate the feedback Marc.

Cheers

Nothing in WebKit remains of KHTML/KJS and hasn't been for several years. The original fork pre-WebKit was a fork of KHTML/KJS which Apple would periodically release tarballs that KDE would diff back into their stack, wherever they saw fit.

WebKit was born later, free from KDE legacy code and it took nearly 4 years for KDE to finally embrace WebKit, but not before Nokia bought Qt and embraced it.

Still giving credit to KDE is incorrect.
