Yeah, I have a hard time with anything Google these days (scary behemoth), but I've come to prefer Chromium over Iceweasel and haven't found anything else that works reliably (though it has been a while since I've used Opera). > In time I'm sure webkit or the like can be added to konq returning it > to a great web browser as well. Patience in the key here. I wish I had your optimism, I'm really amazed how little traction TDE has, even more so Konqueror - thanks in part to the Dolphin over Konqueror boondoggle. I don't know the current state, but the Konqueror webkit engine (option in KDE4?) wasn't reliably better. In any case, it's a welcome surprise to hear that someone else still finds Konqueror indispensable.
