What's the deal with Mozilla?


Why does everyone like Mozilla Web Browser? What makes it better than Konqueror, and/or what's wrong with Konquorer?

Do you always internet with your file manager? :P That's sort of the question. I'd rather have a real web browser. I think programs should stick with one thing or area you can work with it but beyond that there should be another program. Another example is OpenOffice and Scribus (Word and publisher in windows) They're both good programs but they're for different kinds of work.

I like firefox more than mozilla since Firefox is smaller and less bloated. It does what I want it to do and doesn't have many features I don't use.

I think there are some things that just don't work in a filemanager/browser combination but that's not something I have proven. It's just a feeling I have. I used konqueror for exactly 10 minutes before I started with mozilla and firefox so I don't know any real drawbacks except that I hear some features don't work with konqueror.
