The problem is that konqueror have problems with several sites where
iceweasel work properly.  It was the reason we switched, and I suspect
it is still true.  Do not remember any sites of the top of my head,
though, but remember I saw issues when I tested multimedia and flash

I agree that the problems with it need to be fixed, though. :(

We can not force the users or their admin to spend time to figure out
which browser work best.  We should make a decision and stick to it.
Those with time and interest will be able tochange it anyway, and we
do not want to alienate those without the time and interest to
consider these choices.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
