The fonts are Veranda [Xft] and here is another shot with the default Keramic style and colour.

You know you want it zLinuxz

I don't really know anyone who has been using Linux for any real length of time who has been mighty impressed with konqueror. I myself use Galeon, but that is because I LOVE tabbed browsing, and until now Konqueror didn't have that option.

What's so wrong with konqueror, other than it's part of KDE which seems to be generally hated. I see that it's semi resource hungry, but it's not like it's real slow, or crashes all the time.

Thanks for info on why the hate club was formed anyone.

Okay, I'm only coming up on 2 years, but I like the little browser, its cute and quick and most things look normal, heck I'm replying to this post in it. I've used Galeon, Opera, Mozilla, Netscrape, and really can't explain why, but I keep using Konqueror. I don't really understand it because I like tabbed browsing a lot too... might have something to do with 2 monitors, that just makes tabbed browsing less important. My first d/l on a new box is usually still opera though

Its true, KDE is a big bloated horking resource pig. Er, so I don't run it on my PPros, those if I bother to run X at all, use fluxbox.

I really like KDE, but then again I have... 14 Konsoles open over 4 desktops so really you could say I don't care much about the wm.

$.02,

Cheers,

I believe that IE will have tabs as part of 6.5 or 7, or whatever the next one is. It'll still suck, though.

I generally use Galeon for web browsing because it seems so damned quick compared to the others (mozilla is quick, but seems to take forever to actually load... and that's on a 1.4G), but I tend to use Konqueror for local file browsing because of it's different modes of view (icon, list, and whatever).

Is it just me, and a few others, or is E very nice and very fast for such eye candy? It seems to be the happy medium between Pure eye candy, and speedy window manager. I am very impressed with the looks of it, but I just can't get used to all the "mousiness".

Very nice shot there btw, I like E even when it's plane and simple.

Cool

Ok, don't think I have actually contributed a Linux screenshot to this thread yet, and since I have some cool pics of view by my house, I figure I can kill 2 birds with one post, and show you guys some cool pics I took, and show you a shot of my XFCE screen.

It's pretty basic actually, the menus above the default keys are adjusted a bit, but for the most part, this would be what you'd see from a stock XFCE install on Slack (with the exception of the b/g of course

XFCE

If you are having problems viewing that one, there is a smaller one here:
Small XFCE

I think with both of them you may have to "copy and paste" into your address bar if they don't work by click the links.
