Hello, thanks for caring! This topic has been up for years [1].

I'd like to suggest a public poll, directed to both users and developers. 
Based on the poll results we could choose the best action for improving the 
browsing experience on KDE.

The poll could have questions like:

 - what's your role in the KDE community? (beginner user, ..., advanced dev.)

 - which browser do you use primarily? (don't know, konqueror, firefox, ...)

 - do you have problems with your browser? (no, 10% of sites, 20% ...)

 - do you use other browsers? (don't know, konqueror, firefox, ...)

 - how did your browsing experience changed in the last year? (the same, 
improved, worsen)

konqueror users:
 - would you like to change the default rendering engine? (no, yes/webkit, 
yes/gecko, ...)

non konqueror users:
 - what will make you switch to the Konqueror browser? (100% sites 
compatibility, browsing speed, startup speed, extensions...)

 - do you need to extend your browser? (no, firefox-like extensions, plugins, 
browser scripting, ...)

 - do you miss something in your web browser? (open answer)

The poll should be advertised in blogs, kde-look, dot, etc. And in the end the 
statistical analysis will be the "voice of the community" and could be really 
useful for having consensus on the curse of actions.
