Konqueror- the lovely KDE MFS

Posted 08-25-2012 at 04:18 PM by leosubhadeep


KDE has been a much-beloved option for the Linux users. It looks neat, and the latest versions (I am using 4.9.0 in Ubuntu and 4.8.5 in Fedora lately) has showed a faster, cleaner and good-looking desktop environment. Konqueror, in my point of view, is one of the best parts of KDE.
It's a well-known fact that users switching from Windows to Linux find KDE more convenient than other desktops (here I'm excluding the lightweight desktops such as xfce). Right after getting into it, the first thing most users do is to download the latest versions of Firefox and Google Chrome/Chromium (I was not an exception to them!). Giving Konqueror more value that it deserves surely pays those users a lot.
Konqueror is simultaneously a file manager, a fast and good web browser and a multi-purpose file viewer. All in a single software must deserve a name of MFS or "Multi-Functional Software".

Surprisingly, I always keep an eye on the next release of Firefox and Chrome- my love story for them began in Windows, from my panic to Internet Explorer. Now IE has come a long way from the days of IE 5/6 to IE 9/10 and more suprisingly, IE is also integrated with Windows, the same way Konqueror with KDE! And IE still needs help (from.. GOD??) !!

My favourite line in context to this topic, from the Konqueror itself: "Basically every KDE application supporting KParts can be embedded into Konqueror."
