  There is a point here that might be worth considering, and one which 
Carewolf and i spoke about sporadically at Akademy in Glasgow: There is a 
place for Konqueror and there always will be. It is a poweruser tool, and does 
so very well. Where the problems come up is when people attempt to mold this 
poweruser tool into something joe sixpack is able to use. While this /is/ 
possible in some cases, Konqueror is just not one of those.
  As such, a separate browser, just like Dolphin is a separate file browser, 
would be a good thing for Konqueror: It would allow our wonderful tool to take 
its position as a poweruser tool to the extreme, while allowing a specific web 
browser to be developed for that specific use case, just like Dolphin is for 
browsing files.
  Whether this would be Arora or Yet Another NIH Browser, well, that is 
something up to the people who end up actually writing the code. My €.02 would 
be on Arora with KDE integration, though ;)
