May 02, 2000, 13:11 (5 Talkback[s])

"The KDE Team is pleased to announce the launch of Konqueror.org, a website devoted to Konqueror, KDE's next-generation, full-featured, powerful, flexible, modular and Internet-transparent file manager, web browser and universal document viewer."

"Konqueror, which has been widely acclaimed as a technological break-through for the Linux desktop, has a component-based architecture which combines the features and functionality of Internet Explorer®/Netscape Communicator® and Windows Explorer®. Konqueror supports all major Internet technologies, including JavaScriptTM, Java®, HTML 4.0, CSS-2 (Cascading Style Sheets), SSL (Secure Socket Layer for secure communications) and, in the near future, Netscape® plugins (for viewing FlashTM, RealAudioTM, RealVideoTM and similar technologies). In addition, Konqueror's network transparency offers seamless support for browsing Linux® NFS shares, Windows® SMB shares and FTP directories. Konqueror will ship as part of the highly anticipated release of KDE 2.0, targeted for mid-summer 2000."

"Konqueror's developers created Konqueror.org to serve as Konqueror's official website. There users can learn about Konqueror's many powerful features, keep abreast of the latest Konqueror news and developments, learn how to download and install Konqueror and submit comments and questions to Konqueror developers. Developers can learn how they can use Konqueror to web-enable their applications, how they can enable their applications to serve as a Konqueror component and how they can contribute to Konqueror's ongoing development. "
