Lunascape: Browser With Three Engines

Usually browser has it's own engines. Mozilla and Seamonkey with Gecko engine, Safari with WebKit, Konqueror with KHTML, etc. There is Lunascape web browser which has three engine in one product. You can call it hybrid web browser as it combines three engines in one product (WebKit, trident, and Gecko). I haven't tried it myself, but if they can manage to combine the best of all engines in the world in one product and make it work together, i think it should have the advantage of each engine.

In their latest release (5 Beta), they claimed that they are faster than firefox, chrome, and IE 8:
Lunascape 5 beta is faster than Firefox or Google Chrome, and is fully 4x faster than Internet Explorer 8rc (tested February 2009).
