It's not needed and Konqueror has no CSS3/HTML5 uses of it (except for box-sizing)

  1. does konqueror use any khtml prefixes (now or recently) and on what properties?
  2. if konqueror is actively using khtml vendor prefixes, does their market share warrant support?
    • they're not, so it's moot.
    • the only stats I have seen regarding Konqueror (and the other linux variety's browser shares) put them at under 3% of Linux users, cumulatively.

We already did this in compass, btw: Compass/compass#598

edit: webkit removed support for khtml aliasing too

Yeah kill it. I've never once used it, nor know anyone who has.

+1, murder it!

@impressivewebs KHTML is the rendering engine in the web browser Konqueror. Webkit is a fork of KHTML.

Cool, remove it!, I'm a heavy linux user and I don't know someone that uses Konqueror, so removing the khtml prefix will be safe.
