In Konqueror JavaScript is brocken. Also using Konq as a browser interferes 
with the filemanagement function: for file management I disable the toolbars 
but for browser I need them. If to enable toolbars in Konq, they appear in 
all other profiles, and there is no way to disable them other than editing 
config files. Very annoying bug.

Also Webkit is just newer than KHTML in KDE3 and receives security updates.
