I have KDE 4-something installed from the PPA alongside 3.5.9.  I work in 
3.5.9 and log into 4.x once a month or so to see the progress.  I don't know 
if the PPA version is the same as the version you get when you install KDE4 
to be your main environment.  Dolphin still lacks a lot of the stuff I can do 
with the kio_slaves in konqueror, I doesn't do tabs, an I can't manage online 
stuff like it was a local drive, like I can with Konqueror.  As Martin says 
in a parallel post, it is the combination of web browser and file manager 
that makes konqueror so good.
