I agree with your opinion of Opera. I think it is the best browser available both on Linux and Windows platforms. On the same machine I reported the slowness of Konqueror Opera runs fast without a problem.
As far as proxy settings, mine are disabled and that didn't make any noticeable difference when it comes to Konqueror. I would like to understand why disabling DHCP and not using the router for DNS calls fixes the performance issue since both Opera and Konqueror use the same network connection (and configuration) with completely different results.
