Have you seen Kate's built-in file manager? I browse a dozen remote
servers as if they were local either in Konqi or right there in Kate!
I actually considered naming my daughter after that program!

Be it known that Firefox has this feature as well. Make a bookmark
http://google.com/search?q=s% with the keyword "g". Now type "g linux"
into the address bar.
