"A key component of the K Desktop Environment 2 (KDE 2) is
the Konqueror browser. Not only can Konqueror browse both your file
system and the web, it can do both at the same time in the same
window. I have been using Konqueror as my main web browser for a
week now and this article relates my experiences. Since I didn't
use Konqueror as a file explorer I won't talk about that in this
"In a nutshell, Konqueror works pretty well. I successfully used
it as my primary browser with a few small problems, but nothing
that was a showstopper."
"Using Konqueror to browse my favorite sites was a pleasant
experience. The sites were rendered fairly quickly and Konqueror
doesn't have is the ability to automatically supply user names and
passwords for sites the way that Mozilla does."
