I agree to Oliver. While I'm working with Chromium browser I do a lot
of testing of web pages with html/php/js with many different browsers
on different systems, even Windows 7. Konqueror has never been a
friend of mine and it is not going to be. Too slow, too many hickups
with pages all other browsers have no problems with, etc.
I know that personal preferences are not the same as reasonable
arguments but those preferences have grown because of reasons.

BTW: Anne wrote earlier in this thread that the problems with Mozilla
are solved, if so then this issue is not an issue any more,
