That is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy overstated :),
especially when comparing Konqueror and Firefox. The difference in
speed between Firefox and Konqueror in startup speed is very little, I
counted only a 3 second difference on my laptop. The speed of the
program itself, after start, is unnoticeable; at least on a modern
machine. The speed between the two can't be that much anyhow, is
Konqueror not based on Firefox?

I like Konqueror(I love Konqueror as a file browser), but it can't
compare to Firefox as a web browser. It does not have the same number
of browser features (Konqueror is a file browser first and foremost, not
a browser) and with Firefox's hundreds of add-ons Firefox can be made to
do almost anything you want.

I used Netscape up until the release of Firefox .8, I can't remember the
first Netscape I used, but it would be very old as that was over 10
