	Well, I've found that Konqueror Very Often misrenders modern websites, but 
IMO it's probably the best all-around file manager I've used; very flexible 
due to splittable panes, kio slaves, etc.
	I do miss KDE's Image View, which I think is better than the one in Trinity's 
Konqueror, but otherwise, Konqueror rocks as a file manager.
