    Why should there be. Konqueror has been in use for years. If you have noticed any specific behavior which raises concern, post a comment here with details.

    So to declare one better than another without proof is poor. The question is how fast does the distro fix it..

    one more thing..... Konqueror is not displaying some pages properly... one example is orkut.com and konqueror crashes on login to icicibank.com. People from India will know about icici. It is a bank having the most number of online customers in India.

    Anyway. Although it should work and you need to establish why it's not. Why not just use a browser that does, Firefox, Opera, Seamonkey..... there is choice and plenty of it.

    I used to love Konq(now run a minimal DE) but I always found java a bit strange, I never managed to just have konq and always needed FF.

    iirc konqueror uses the java interpreter directly, so it already is working differently. If using openjdk then swap or vis versa, see if that helps.

    As for the different browsers mmm, strangely enough I have a problem with FF and flash(Different distro) yet FF Optimised doesn't show me the problems. I tried to look at the patch but to me it looks like mainly branding and I guess some compile flags but since changing I've seen a marked improvement.

    I'm also betting 64bit, if you are then with the ease that Suse does it I would use 32bit browser stuff, you can have 2 javas running, just keep the 64bit iirc for OOo and Konqueror, and use the 32bit with a 32bit FF.

    Though I have to concur with Caf4926 orkut looks fine, but i686 in my vm.

    Did you login to icicibank.com? you need to click on 'Personal' link and give user name and password for that...

    I am using opensuse 11.1 with KDE 4.2.3 release1
