the most significant feature that made me believe that konqi can
really do magic, i searched every  menu item and option in amarok to
see how i can rip a CD, until i discovered the KIO-slave, real magic!
i also like that i can open multiple tabs while using konqi as a file
browser, very handy when moving/copying files across many directories.
even though i rarely use/need them, i like the integration features
with the rest of KDE, like seeing amarok's now playing info in the
left pane of konqi.
