Put it this way ... on my PCLinuxOS test 2007 system, which uses KDE 3.5.6, Konqueror is the fastest program to come up of all. It comes up quicker than kcalc!

Well... Konqueror comes with at least one instance pre-loaded on most distros as this is a KDE default setting and I havenīt seen any distro changing that. So that may explain why it is so fast compared to, say, Dolphin, Krusader or even Kcalc. ;)

or perhaps konqueror uses libraries that are needed for other things that are running while KDE is running, so that things are preloaded without purpose of having it like this.

On the PCLinuxOS test 2007 system, which uses KDE 3.5.6, the option to pre-load an instance of Konqueror on KDE start-up is available, but not enabled by default.

Even without this pre-load Konqueror option set (as I say the default setting is that zero instances of Konqueror are pre-loaded), Konqueror is still the fastest program of all to come up.

Also, if you use a version of Qt and KDE compiled with the '-visibility' flag and prelink konqueror, the result is something that is mind-boggling fast.
