Are you serious?
Firefox is streets ahead of Konqueror.
I just wish the KDE people would stop thinking
they have to re-invent every wheel,
and would try instead to integrate standard applications
(like Firefox) into KDE.
[I spent weeks trying to get kdvi to work,
before going back to the far superior xdvi.]
Apart from the fact that Konqueror crashes quite often,
it also doesn't work with many web-sites,
eg the Bank of Ireland on-line service.
(Admittedly I haven't tried to access that with Konqueror for some time.)
What I find slightly annoying is that it is quite difficult
to get rid of Konqueror, and you find it starting up
in odd places as the chosen browser.
