yes, with almost the same setup. In general, konqueror scrolling really sucks
compared to Mozilla --- I found this with every test site I tried (for a
total of 3 pages :o) )
After a bit of experimenting, I'd say it's font rendering. I did not compile
Mozilla with Xft, so Mozilla's fonts gets clunky when text-zoom'ed enough.
Konqueror's fonts are still very smooth even when there's only room for one
line of text (after the title.)
I remember a setting somewhere about not using AA for fonts between certain
sizes. You could check it out :)
