Seeing as the other thread was nearly two years old, I decided it was time to create a new poll. Hopefully the mods agree with me:whistle:
Please remember that this thread is not for browser discussion but engine discussion.

Webkit for sure. Really glad Steam changed to it too, since it used to take what felt like ages to load simple screenshots. :pinch:

no such option exists, if you beg for one then you may get it.

I like more WebKit that others even if I use Firefox. But Gecko is good too.
I think Presto may be good too, but I don't like Opera enough to test it.
Trident need to die :p

Webkit gets my vote. Now if Microsoft would switch to it, all the better.

I love the advancements with the Trident engine, though i don't know if the hardware acceleration is built into the engine, if it is, then that is awesome. The problem with Gecko now is that they have to borrow from Webkit to make a beter Javascript engine.

I'm a Firefox user(not planing to change) but I have to say Webkit's engine is wayyyy much better.

I voted for Webkit. It's raw speed and early (I mean EARLY) support for cool new CSS/HTML tricks is great. Standards aren't as tight as Presto, but I have never seen a problem (except on sites designed exclusively for IE6 and other horrible practices).;)

I personally like the Webkit engine the best, I really only use browsers that built around that (Safari & Chrome) on my Mac lately. I like the speed and way it renders, while also being lightning fast!

I've heard that the IE team is planning to switch to Webkit in version 9. How long has this rumour been around? I have read about it coming with IE8 in the past but this is just getting ridiculous. I would love Microsoft if they did switch though!
