The rendering engine is faster than opera's whats slower is that it doubles as a file mamager

Yeah, I was referring to the file manager part. If it's still slow, guess I won't waste my time. Maybe Krusader is a better choice? I haven't tried it yet.
So far, I've not found a fast file manager for Linux with advanced features built in, such as these:

Someone help ? ;)

As a file manager, Konqueror is not slow. Not since KDE 3.5.4.

Krusader has more features again than Konqueror for file management, it is a bit slower to load than Konqueror though. For added speed, you can optionally have KDE load an instance of Konqueror at startup, similar to what Windows does for explorer.

There is a Linux equivalent for directory opus. I will look it up for you.

PS: I can't find the one I had in mind, that does graphical file differences & such. For pure file management tasks, Krusader, Konqueror, Nautilis and Worker are probably the best picks.

I don't understand why you guys say that Konqueror is slow as a file manager...that's not my experience at all. How old are your machines?

This is true, but I was refering to speed as a whole, for instance when you hit "Back" or "Forward", it's suggish with Konqueror. You don't feel the speed difference in rendering though.

Back or Forward functions in the local filesystems are not slow. This would only apply to web pages ... other browsers use cache to speed up back or forward functions. I don't think Konqueror does.

Konqueror is not slow (any more) as a file manager, and it can load and render (correctly, it is acid2 compliant) a single web page at least as fast as, if not faster than, any other browser.
