Graphics, User Interfaces So many operating systems and so many graphical desktop environments... This article is a comparison of the UI and usability of several Desktop Environments (DEs), that have been widely used, admired and reviled: Windows XP Luna, BeOS 6 (Dano/Zeta), Mac OS X Aqua and Unix's KDE and Gnome. Read on which one got our best score on our long term test and usage.

Some things Forgoten about Konqueror..
by megalex on Tue 18th Mar 2003 15:32 UTC

Some People fail to see some critical features that konqueror has that many filemanagers / browsers dont have !!! Konqueror TOTALY does circles around IE ect..

PROTOCLS !! konqueror handles MANY ptocols.. IE handles just a few..
in example:

"sftp://root@mybox.com"

IE:
http
smb
ftp

Konqueror:
http
smb
ftp
sftp
rio
nfs
audiocd
napster
camera
man
many more..

and you get a "feel" the overall filebrowsing feel when you are using one of this protocols is that you are browsing in you localhost in terms of what you can do!! you can edit/move/copy files directly and do many of the same functions that you would do to files that are in your local file system. and any of these protocols in Konq move WAY faster than in IE. specially smb/ftp.
Kioslave allows you to have many more.. weeee...

Add Tabbed Browsing / Split views and you have an awesome way to manage multiple directories in a single window ! Or you can browse websites in tabbed or split view!!
Let me Tell u SPLIT VIEWS ROCK !!!.
