Why is it that Konqueror prints web pages so well?

I'm not a big KDE fan. I hate the desktop but I have to admit that KDE applications offer more functionality than Gnome. I was using Konqueror one day and it printed out a web page and it did a marvelous job, pictures and all. Firefox and Opera will usually not print even simple images and leaves them out.

So my question is how is it that Konqueror will tend to print the whole web page and Firefox and Opera will not? What does Konqueror have that the others don't?

Thanks in advance!

I think Konqueror is Webkit based, like Safari and Chrome, completely different from Firefox/Opera, but Firefox has some settings in the tabs in the print dialog, where you can change settings like image printing.
