"For those of you who have been using KDE since its introduction, may remember the original file manager kfm. It was only around for the debut version of KDE. By KDE 2.0, it was replaced with Konqueror. Since that time, Konqueror has remained an integral part of KDE as a file manager but is so much more. A rule-breaker by definition, Konqueror is a file manager, a web browser, a universal viewing application, a client for many protocols, and the most customizable of KDE applications.

"Konqueror the File Manager

"Konqueror’s first job is as a file manager and it is one that it does so well. It has all the standard copy, cut, paste, delete, create, and undo functions you’d expect from a file manager. Standard file manager features just scratch the surface of Konqueror. A closer look reveals that Konqueror can open almost any type of file on your filesystem, including those that have proprietary file formats. PDF files, for example, are opened inside Konqueror with no external program, like xpdf, to assist."
