Epiphany, the Gnome Web Browser, Is Switching to WebKit

They’re switching to WebKit from Gecko:

We feel that WebKit has the momentum, and can bring more developers to both Epiphany directly and the Gnome platform by extension. WebKit/GTK+ already has more people working on it than are working on either GtkMozEmbed or the Epiphany gecko back-end.
