It hasn't been. Konqueror is still there. You can enable it with one mouse click. What's the problem?

I like Dolphin precisely because it doesn't have all the complications that Konqueror used to have. I like simplicity. You seem to be afraid that the thing you like is being taken away from you, but all that has happened is that the default has been changed to something that you don't like but which some other people prefer.

So you have two points of view - you like the old way I (and presumably the KDE devs who designed the thing) like the new way. Who is right? Neither of us. But we can both choose to use the solution we like best. So who has lost? Nobody. What has been removed? Nothing. Stop moaning.
