    Is anyone else bugged by the whole "its a browser and a file manager" thing, like Explorer? I hate this trend, give me a browser that is a good browser, not a whole dang shell!

    I'm with ya on that one...

    One thing I *DID* like about kde, was the ability to quick browse your files from the kde menu... made it easy to surf for an app that you wanted to run or something... oh well, I didn't like it enough to drop fluxbox (;

    Konqueror is a browser, file manager, and document viewer because of KDE's modular design. Konquerer is just a host for the KPart needed for the particular task such as web browsing or file management. This is the way computers are going - even more so with Microsoft's dot net and the various spin-offs. Personally, I like it. It is complete integration and complete modularization. It inherits the strengths of both while minimizing the weaknesses.

    And this is so un-Unix; "Small programs that each do one thing and do it well, that can be linked as needed"
