personally i have had more problems with firefox than
it is worth (unexplainable shutdowns, hangs, etc) that
i use konq and opera most of the time (or the
venerable old lynx). i find that with the exception of
java (which i don't hardly use) there is not any site
that i just *have* to go to that i can't get to with
konq. (i actually run opera for the skins and such
which are fun, having never bothered to set up java
for it)

and as to those people who say that knoq can do too
much, read the page www.knoqueror.org konq is
intentally a swiss army knife. instead of asking konq
to change, remind those sites that it cannot visit
that they are not standards compliant (which konq is)

anyway my $0.02
