As I stated before Mandriva has always done an amazing job of integrating Firefox into KDE.  Yet, other distros, for whatever reason, seem to have a difficult time of it.  Also, while I love Konqueror, it does have compatibility issues.  Chromium, regardless of your opinion of Google, is an incredibly fast browser.  

It seems like Firefox is the favorite browser of most people on this list. Also, with the quality of the developers on this project I'm sure FF integration with KDE will be excellent!  I'd love to see Chromium as the default but Firefox is an excellent browser in its own right as well. It's a win win either way. :)

AFAICS Firefox is the default browser in KDE4:
$ grep Browser /var/lib/mandriva/kde4-profiles/common/share/config/kdeglobals

Konqueror is installed by default anyway. However, unfortunately
Konqueror isn't the most compatible browser out there...
