I'm sure many of us feel like that :-)  I have always thought that the main 
problems were probably caused by M$'s 'extensions', but if firefox can handle 
them it should be possible for that knowledge to be applied.  That is, of 
course, unless it would introduce serious code clashes.  Only the 
developers/maintainers can answer that one.

I don't really care about the sites that over-use eye-candy, but sites where I 
need to make a payment and the vendor's system doesn't work properly with 
konqueror are a real problem.
