>Webcore this time?

Leonid would explain this in more detail but going to the main concept:

As for today, Mozilla based browsers are almost a de-facto standard in
the GNOME desktop, so it is a natural choice for us to support the same
browser engine.  This also gives us the opportunity to align our
development with the very successful Mozilla & Firefox projects and
communities. It makes sense and we have now an intereting horizon of
potential collaboration. 

WebCore, WebKit and the Nokia web browser have proven to be a very good
choice for S60 and the more constrained smartphone form factor. No
problem with this either.
