Yes, it is embedding Okular transparently just as it embedded Dolphin
transparently. You can get very creative with this.

Which is why Konqueror is a power-users tool. For many folks, it
overlapped into the not-really-file-browsing space just enough to be
very useful, but not bloated.

Okular won't natively let you put two PDFs side by side, or in two tabs.

Most of them have "that one last feature" that they are holding out
on, but have a hard time identifying what it is. My job
(self-appointed) is to wring out of them which feature that is, and
make sure that it gets put into KDE 4.
