Thanks, I did not know about that.
But there is another problem with Konqueror (maby only for me it is a
problem) - Konqueror is much less configurable as a web browser and
therefore harder to use. Or maby I just could not find some options?
Eg. couldn't find out how to globally turn off password remembering.
Besifes using the same app to browse my own computer and the net is
not very comfortable for me:(
