I am not speaking of only Epiphany, I mean the entire GNOME Desktop, we
have Evolution using gtkhtml, yelp using Gecko, epiphany in the future
using WebKit. The user lose the choice of selecting one rendering engine
if we do not start thinking in building a plug-able rendering engine for
all of them. We had it with epiphany now, lets expand it to other apps,
instead of following our closed world of each app do everything again.
But now I sound a little repetitive, stubborn by genetics jajajajaj :-)
