Re: [trinity-devel] Browser?

I'm looking to learn to program, not just design a browser interface
with Gambas. As for konqueror the file manager, I do like it better
than Dolphin, but only because of it's flexibility (see Katheryne's
earlier message) and because I've grown accustomed to the UI. Dolphin
has a much simpler/easier interface from the perspective of most
newbies. We (Ark Linux) will leave it as the default file manager in
our KDE4 ISO because of that, though I'm not sure about our Trinity
