Both Mozilla and Konqueror are good browsers. Personally I prefer Mozilla. Mozilla has an integrated email client that is pretty good also. Konqueror doesn't have an email client you would need to use KMail, Evolution, or one of the many other email clients available.

I would suggest that you try them all and see which one suits you better. Choice is good

Also try mozilla-firebird. Faster than mozilla. I like it better.

I've seen firebird on mozilla page, but i'm not really sure what it is. What is the difference? Is it a separate program or is it an upgrade to my existing mozilla?
