Have you heard of konqueror?


Konq doesn't compare to Opera, and I say that as someone who uses Konq as their primary, every day browser. I moved to it from Opera, but there are several touches and areas of granular configurability that I really miss.

Konq is great because it's fast and integrates well with the rest of KDE, which is why I use it, but Opera has a degree of polish that both Konq and FF lack, since it can only come from years of use and fine tuning. That's not necessarily a knock to Konq or FF, simply a reflection of the fact that a legacy of tweaking and addressing issues with an established application can often trump the bleeding-edge nature of FLOSS applications. Not always, but sometimes.

Opera integrates pretty well with KDE already, as it's a Qt application (Same color theme). Granted it's not a file browser.
