Again... with the exception of ad filtering, nothing you mentioned above is 
either khtml or konqueror specific! That was the point I was making above...

These settings are KIO specific settings. That means all applications that use 
KIO share them by default. They can override them, but by default they are 
shared by all. That is the beauty or the beast of KIO depending on your point 
of view.
