Konqueror's engine, KHTML, is the engine of Mac OSX's Safari, and
although the upstream push from OSX to KDE varies in efficiency,
it should be generally quite well tested and secure (at least on
the engine level).

Why not? It's not like you can't run it under GNOME. It's just that - if
you don't use any other Qt apps, like Filelight or K3b already - apt-get
will download a couple more libraries, and the interface might differ
If you'd like to use a non-Qt browser, though,
you can always use Mozilla, Galeon or Epiphany.
