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 
years ago.
