True, my point was, why not use a browser that works just fine and eliminate 
the hassle of even opening another browser window when things don't work.

Try telling someone your trying to convince to switch to linux that in 
konqueror, often sites do not work right, so you need to right click and open 
the site in a completely different browser.

They would probably look at you and say or think "Ah forget this I'll just 
stick to windows"
