Dear Core Developers,
This mail about konqueror was sent to kde-pim, while it should rather belong somewhere else... I'm not sure if kde-core-devel is the best place, but at least it's the place where the most kde core hackers hang out.

The mentioned article is definitely worth a read, probably even a dot / slashdot / linuxtoday article, since it compares konqueror with the windows explorer. Guess what the results are... The article sounds like comparing an absolute killer application with an absolute crap application.

Hello KDE Pim Team

A while back there was a discussion of creating a separate 
file manager from Konqueror, among other enhancements.  
Here is an article that covers many of the features 
discussed in that thread by a user in Japan:


A few features the author really liked:

* Easily viewing files accessed via multiple protocols 
along with the web.  
* The split window capability

IIRC, all of these were touched upon in the recent 
discussion here.  I agree with the authors views of what 
make Konqueror special.  Both of us are long time 
Konqueror users (I have been using it daily for over 8 
years).  We both seem prefer to avoid the dichotomy of 2 
applications to browse content.  And both seem to really 
appreciate the split window capability along with tabs 
(especially on larger displays).
