AFAIK Konqueror has had AJAX crap for longer than Mozilla. Generally we
support the MSIE variants though when there is a difference (because Ajax is
a MSIE extension), but because Mozilla couldn't manage to copy MSIE well
enough ,all the ajax sites out there now send browser specific JS code, and
often broken code to browsers they don't recognize.
