There have been many complaints that konqueror is too big, too complicated, 
too configurable, so it was decided that a lighter weight file manager was in 
order.  For those of us that like its configurability, we get to keep 

Konqueror does, however, have its roots in old code, and it has proved very 
difficult to keep up to date in terms of web browsing because of that.  The 
funny thing is that while there are some sites that Konqueror just can't 
handle, today I met one with a form which Firefox displayed wrongly - missing 
a field completely, and therefore could not be returned.  Konqueror displayed 
it and sent it off without a problem.  I find it very necessary to have both 
FF and Konq to hand.

Once kde4 settles down it will be time to decide where web browsing goes in 
kde - though the decisions are probably made already.
