An interesting question would be if the [assumed] 99% remaining users wouldn't 
be better off using Dolphin and Rekonq as rather simple task-oriented 
applications, whereas Konqueror and its parts would gain strength in more 
properly integrating with KIO, thus e.g. providing a new experience in editing 
web pages similar to wikis but independent of the media types.

It could easily be marketed as "web 2.0 done right" - why use Picasa when you 
can just edit your photos in the cloud with the embedded Digikam part?

Well, I guess that's because I belong to the 1% of users who continue to be 
attracted to software projects through their long-term vision rather than 
their current utility ;)
