konq is nice and speedy to start, but on my system loads pages slower than 
firefox -- something about wanting to load all of the graphics before it 
renders the page.  If it is having trouble with an image, nothing is 
rendered, rather than the mozilla broken-image icon.

And the ability to to browse the network, the local machine, and render html 
is very nice, but I can't access my bank or my webmail with it, and that's a 
deal breaker in terms of exclusive use.

Konq is a grade A++ file manager, but at best a grade B web browser.

I HATE dolphin.

I remember Netscape 0.9 which was about 750 k in windows -- smaller than the 
average web page these days.
