Fun fact: Firefox is pretty much the only remaining browser with a web engine that isn't a descendant of KHTML.

KHTML (Konqueror) -> WebKit (Safari) -> Blink (Chromium/Chrome/Modern Edge/Opera/Brave/etc)

@absolucy It's my main browser on all devices, but there have been so many annoying issues with sites that make it hard to make it my only browser

@david @absolucy I've settled on Firefox as primary, with Brave as backup. Even ignoring the monoculture issue for a second, Firefox seems to be the only browser that does subpixel rendering correctly, so text always feels blurrier to me when using a Chromium-based browser.

@absolucy I was a Konqueror user back in the day! KDE3 was the bee’s knees. Will also never forget burning mix CDs for my friends with the help of the software K3B: KDE Burn Baby, Burn

i'm curious, how big was konqueror? did many people use it?
