"The new Karmic currently comes with Linux kernel
2.6.31, KDE 4.3, Amarok 2.1.1 as the audio player, Dragon Player as
the default video player. In one of my previous articles I pointed
out some of the new features in KDE 4.3, some of which are
implicitly included in Karmic, like the new Plasma look, called
Air, or the new KRunner.
"Konqueror is a hell of a browser, with countless features and
ease of use for those who are already used to it. These are not
all, but it comes with web shortcuts, enabled AdBlock filters,
profiles, plugins, shortcut to various web page translations, user
agent switching and so on. There was a time when Konqueror was very
unstable, but now I encountered no crashes, with Flash enabled. On
the other hand it was always mature regarding features and
usability, since the KDE3 days. YouTube works fine also, but I had
to manually install the Flash plugin, although package
flashplugin-nonfree was already installed."
