Konqueror's image

Yesterday an article about what Konqueror is about, and today an article that states that Konqueror beats all when it comes to performance. KDE's marketing-machine running? Ah well it is a great browser anyway and has come a long way the last 1,5 year (probably apples' webkit has something to do with it as well: more people working on (almost) the same code). Too bad so many sites want you to change the ID to firefox to get all the html-code, not really Konqueror's fault, because it can run the sites when the ID is changed. I hope at least google is going to recognise that konqueror can show their sites, they're supposed to be open minded towards open source.

It is the reason why I like Konqueror so much as a Web-Browser:

- Speedy startup compared to Firefox (at least for us KDE users).
- Fast rendering.


However, there still are some sites, who insist on using bad java/javascript/flash code. For these I will start up firefox (and kmail, to make their webmaster become aware of their errors ;) ).
