The correct avenue here, in light of the news from the upstream
is to keep the status quo regardless of the lack of usability. When we
finally get a fully-featured Qt based browser, that is when we switch. We
DO NOT switch to a GTk based browser that has zero integration with the
Plasma desktop - single click selection of files and directories within
Firefox doesn't even work, let alone the theming and other issues.
Ironically, those two items, as well as integration with kWallet, work fine
with Google Chrome (which is not a choice in this discussion).
Tom Calloway has been working on Chromium - and his copr is up-to-date for
anyone who wants to try it.
It's been a slow slog working through the issues keeping it from the
official repository, but progress
has been made: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=28287
Things have also changed over the years, we now have blink, and
Chrome/Chromium's popularity has continued to grow. Firefox has exceptions
mainly because it is deemed "to popular" to keep out of the distribution.
Perhaps Chromium has now reached that point.
