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 http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/113795

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

+1 on the kill.

@impressivewebs

what's khtml? ;)

+1, murder it!

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

@SkaveRat

why was it there in the first place?

@RodrigoAyala

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.

for reference: this is when webkit dropped the alias: http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/113795
