It is not as simple as you think. Do some research.

Hm, it is amazing, but I find KDE alpha releases more stable than some other 
'stable' projects.

Konqueror is not only a file manager, and you probably mean Konqi sometimes 
blows up as a browser. Yes, it does, and things are mainly related to java & 
flash web-sites. Go and get those sites validated and you will see results. 
Yes, I've tried Mozilla and IMHO :

1. it is bloated,
2. it takes ages to start it,
3. handling bookmarks is pain in the a...
4. zooming is terribly solved (something like Internet Explorer),
5. ftp browsing is awful,
6. file dialog is shit,
7. it doesn't have antialiased fonts,
8. it is not a file browser,
9. you can't configure its toolbars,
10. etc., etc.

Thinking is not easy, acting without thinking is easy, and to put one's action 
into thoughts is the most difficult thing in the world.
