Pete, from what I've seen, Konqueror is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I 
haven't dug into it deeply enough to make a definitive case for it. I strongly 
encourage you to try it! It is what Netscape should have been 18-24 months ago. 
Looking forward to final Mozilla, however. Also, there is a browser around that is 
smaller, but based on the Mozilla gecko engine (not Opera). Also another based on 
Konqueror, but smaller. Maybe worth a look see. UA
