Found this on Mozilla site
Note: Plugins and extensions are completely different technologies, they
have nothing to do with each other (apart from being related to
Mozilla). In layman's terms, if you want to add a button to Firefox User
to write some C++ code that can show something embedded inside a
webpage, you want a plugin. A extensions are AdBlock and NoScript,
typical plugins are QuickTime and Macromedia Flash.
So I guess my question should be: does, can or will Konqueror support
EXTENSIONS rather than plugins
