This is less the matter of what works and what does not, but more so how many 
people can be allocated to maintaining support for a browser or not. If we 
were to turn on Firefox mode for Konqueror versus just plain not supporting 
it, Google'd be short changing you as well as ourselves as we would not be 
able to truly take advantage of the platform that KHTML services and wouldn't 
be presenting the end user a very usable experience.

Laying it out in a nutshell, my goal is to get KHTML working with Google's 
apps, not the other way around, as Google has very good (albeit, not what you 
as a KDE hacker wants to hear) business reasons for only supporting three 
main engines. So, patience and perseverance are in order here as I try to get 
the info you need to get our apps working. 

An aside, understand here that this is NOT official, nor blessed support but 
rather a small 20% project for me at work.
