Using 9.0 I can't see anything missing from this page - BigPockets Specials in 
centre page, Hot Items on right and various links etc on left column.

Granted I use a few sites where Konqueror doesn't display some data entry 
fields correctly. However this may be because I'm running 1024 on a 15" 
Try www.tesco.com and use the Shopping tab - if I'm right it will abort with 
messages about screen size and not using a web browser. Change Konqueror's id 
to IE and everything works perfectly!

Settings - Configure - Composer. OK so no list but how many editors have you 
to choose from?

Settings - Configure - Shortcuts. You can set one search engine as default so 
you just type direct into the Open Location box.

Settings - Configure - File Manager and set the url you want as your start 
page. (Yes, you'd expect it to be under the Web Behaviour)
