Ok, this is not nice, but I really have to add this to my comment;

Now that I actually use the simplified Konqueror profile for real work I have 
to say it really isn't the good ol' Konqueror I loved anymore.
I'm doing simple stuff with some php files over ftp and partly locally, but i 
could neither have the local and the remote view in one konqueror window 
side-by-side, nor could I search for files (or their content) inside the 
current directory, like a non-crippled Konqueror can from the tools menu (and 
this is the reason I HAVE to write this to the list...).

Maybe there are some keyboard shortcuts for these - I will ahve to look them 
up - not the achievement I'd hoped for from an 'easy to use' distribution.
