I just checked on Konqueror 4.3.2 using both KHTML and Webkit. None of
the issues did not pop up there either. These were the default builds
included with Kubuntu 9.10 Karmic.

I guess this is a WebKitGTK+ problem and not a general WebKit problem.
However, it is still best to keep all the options on the table and
look into V8. ;)

BTW despite thse issues I still use Epiphany and WebKitGTK+ for my
day-to-day browsing as it is considerably faster than Firefox and
considerably more stable than Chromium. Epiphany/WebKitGTK+ also
respects my DPI settings and anti-aliasing unlike either Firefox or
Chromium. It is for these reasons that I use Epiphany as my default
browser and it is also why Epiphany is the default browser in

Thank you for your hard work,
