Konqueror has too many perks to give up as a web browser, superior tabbing, panels, profiles and more. I really think its best to change khtml to another engine or see what MAC as done with it. Remember, Safari was khtml, so it can be done. Yes, I know MAC is a billion dollar business, but still. Kate PS Tim, where can I change the email addy these mailings are sent to.
