"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 review."

"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 handled cookies and JavaScript well. One feature that Konqueror doesn't have is the ability to automatically supply user names and passwords for sites the way that Mozilla does."
