If you need to have a web browser that
1 Runs flash, java and any other plugins that Mozilla supports.
2 Allows you to browse your network and read files on windows shares ( rw will
be in kde 3.1 )
3 Acts as a ftp and sftp client
4 Also acts as a filesystem browser
5 Displays the vast majority of web sites correctly and in some cases better
6 Allows you to change the browser identification string to trick sites that
only allow people using Internet exploiter to access them
7 Is fast and incredibly easy to use
Then you need konqueror
If you want a fast easy to use and customisable mail client that supports all
kinda bells and whistles and doesn't need a pension card to operate it then
you need Kmail.
