+1 from me for both the reasons above. I would like to see Arora as a 
secondary option as in my household konqueror s the default browser, with 
firefox as the secondary for those times it is necessary. I *would* love to see 
an "Open with Arora" option in Konq's File menu and context menu as Firefox 
currently is (assuming it isn't already there in some form)

I also do not want to have to go through the nightmare of explaining, 
defending, and supporting this move. I know I am sounding a bit like a broken 
record here, but we don't need to create any fodder for the cannons out there 
ready to fire at us .
