good thinking. that is actually a very nice way of browsing easily and
comfortably with konqueror, without worrying about the annoyance of
what to do with sites requiring javascript. i'm in a javascript-only
website almost all the day, where i spend my time. but the rest of the
browsing time? no scripts no gibberish no nothing, in which konqi can
be fantastic.
but i must say, konqi has grown a bit more heavy on the system than it
was before. opening 7~8 tabs of different websites can slow down the
computer while it didn't (and i'm not talking about KDE3, but earlier
konqi in previous releases of KDE4), but still, better than FF.
the chrome deb package for linux that started getting released last
month in chromium's website is also becoming a better and better
browser, even in dev state, it's faster than konq and FF.
just my 2 cents.
