File Manager[edit]

I have included instructions to make Konqueror the default file manager in KDE4, under the, "File Manager" section of the wiki. HTML guru (talk) 15:16, 14 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"In order to make folders open in Konqueror by default, open System Settings, then navigate to, "Default Applications". Here is a section called, "File Manager", where you can choose Konqueror, Dolphin or another file manager of your choice." Wikipedia is not a tutorial or HOWTO site User:HTML guru. I elect to have this removed. Oecology (talk) 08:22, 19 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey, isn't "Konqueror's file manager" actually just Dolphin running embedded inside Konqueror through KParts? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:24, 3 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Default file manager is Dolphin[edit]

At least until you change it when you configure your desktop.

Service menus[edit]

Should there not be a discussion, perhaps with some details, of the various service menus? In my experience one can easily go overboard and end up with a bewildering array of cascading menus whenever one right clicks on a file. There are several mechanisms to configure this, although I can never seem to remember where the one I liked lives. Any help?


"primarily developed for the Linux platform, but also available for some other platforms (including BSD and, recently, Microsoft Windows, although Windows support is very limited)"

I can't see KDE, KHTML, or Konqueror for Windows anywhere, except under Cygwin, can someone confirm this please?yes many say that there is a moranic person who puts junk up that has to do with nothing!!!

A cygwin port is indeed not an MS Windows port. But since when is Linux an OS? The OS field in the table should be GNU (or GNU/*), *BSD, Solaris or something like POSIX, to say it's OS independant and standards compliant. NetBSD, SUSE Linux, Red Hat Linux, Mandriva, OpenBSD, are real OSs, but all of those would be too much to mention.
People all over the world call "GNU/Linux" systems as "Linux" for a long time now. If you actually know the difference then you should know better. Calling it something different than Linux at present would only create unnecessary confusion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:31, 14 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Except "Linux" is much bigger family than "GNU/Linux" (for example those embedded systems with nothing GNU at all) , and "GNU/*" does not mean "GNU/Linux". Ufopedia (talk) 04:04, 4 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I do believe there is a Windows port for all of KDE's official applications at, and includes a Windows installer here. HTML guru (talk) 15:16, 14 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I used Konqueror in Windows over two years ago, and it worked fine. You have to actually install KDE for Windows first, of course. (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 05:17, 10 January 2010 (UTC).Reply[reply]


The article says that Konqueror has been ported to Windows with "limited support," but I'm not sure if this is true. The closest I've seen was a defunct project that intended to build a Windows browser using the KHTML engine that does not currently have downloads available. Theshibboleth 03:56, 29 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The port works currently, really limited... I tested it on my own, but it takes more then a sophisticated user right now to make it run, and it is not even pre-alpha usable... But that will change pretty SOON, because kde4 developement is stepping forward... --PSIplus Ψ 22:37, 2 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
: Konqueror will be released for Windows with the release of KDE 4. Konqueror already runs on Windows, though the level of functionality that currently works I'm not aware of. -- 15:44, 9 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
See my comment under, "Platforms". HTML guru (talk) 15:16, 14 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, there is a version for Windows[edit]

Project home page. It was, when I last tested it (Sept 2013) slower, a bit buggy, and limited compared to the Linux version. Solution is to install openSUSE and update to a current KDE version, and run Windows in VirtualBox, Xen, KVM, etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:14, 18 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The current external URL for no longer works, and has been archived. The most recent working snapshot of that page is from 14 April 2016, and according to that, the most recent version of KDE for Windows is 4.10.2, from 3 May 2013. It seems, that the KDE for Windows project has become dormant since that time. -Mardus /talk 20:46, 7 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Acid2 test[edit]

I removed a link to Acid2 page, because IMHO it is not related to Konqueror - at least not more than to any other web browser - so I do not think it is necessary to be linked from the page about Konqueror. The text contains info that "Also, as of version 3.5.0, Konqueror passes Acid2 CSS compliance test." and IMHO this should be enough. Then I added links to KHTML and Konqueror Embedded, which are more relevant. Viliam Bur 13:26, 1 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


A quick search on Google and in the Ubuntu repositories show no sign of a kmozilla binding. Wouldn't it be pertinent to remove this part of the article, or can someone shed light on this issue? --Vanieter 22:41, 25 August 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Indeed. I'm moving this to talk for now:
"Because of Konqueror's modular nature, Gecko layout engine from Mozilla has been used instead of Konqueror's KHTML renderer. This feature was called kmozilla, and was a former part of the kdebindings package."
It is in Ubuntu repositries.. --RaviC 18:53, 5 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Security issues?[edit]

I've noticed recently that there's been a lot of consternation surrounding the security situation of Konqueror--specifically, problems in the way it handles certificates. Also, people have been drawing parallels to Konqueror's support of some sort of filesharing system (?) and Microsoft's ActiveX (which purportedly lead to viruses/security threats/spyware) (see: Could someone write up about this soon? 00:21, 4 March 2007 (UTC)eeshkingReply[reply]

Get Hot New Stuff (GHNS) isn't similar to ActiveX or Firefox's plugins at all. It is a system to distibute user generated content to applications. It is used for things like fetching backgrounds from in KControl's wallpaper module, downloading new scripts (like for fetching lyrics) in Amarok, downloading templates for KOffice programs (not sure if thats ever been implemented, never used it before). I don't think Konqueror even uses GHNS, so I'm not sure how that would relate to to Konqueror's security. Also I'm not sure what you mean by 'problems in the way it handles certificates'. Is there a specific bug in its SSL cert handling (probably long since fixed), or do you mean flaws in Konqi's cert handling design? -- 15:44, 9 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Huh? GHNS has nothing to do with Konqueror. (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 05:14, 10 January 2010 (UTC).Reply[reply]
Its an addons system. Basically it is a way for users to download themes, applications, and such otherwise not found in one's distro's repositories. --DSA510 Pls No Hate 04:44, 4 November 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Before Konqueror, KDE seemed to have a file manager/web browser called KFM which has seemed to have dissapeared. Was this an old version of Konqueror or a completely different program? Image here

KFM (KDE file manager) was the predecessor to Konqueror. See also [1] and [2]. --mms 20:48, 18 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Konqueror was planned as a browser and file manager for KDE 2.0 [1] [2] but the original direct successor was intended to be "KFM III", which was never completed.[3] KHTML started as khtmlw in kfm but was rewritten to use the W3C DOM. [4].[5] Some of the components eventually used in Konqueror and other KDE 2.0 applications (the KParts framework, for example) were invented during development.

Malformed HTML statement[edit]

Konqueror's rendering speed is on par with that of competing browsers, but sites with malformed HTML are sometimes less leniently rendered than by other browsers.[citation needed]

You might as well link to various statistics here, except they are all non-ideal/real-world.

There needs to be a very good cite for the "malformed HTML" statement. For one, it doesn't mention that the kdewebkit part could be used. Two, nobody actually does their website to strict HTML standards, and the HTML5 ones aren't even done being written. This statement is misleading and inaccurate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:25, 10 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rewritten to specifically mention KHTML. Also poor HTML is rarely a problem. UserAgent detection and customized JavaScript is a much bigger problem Konqueror shares with many other minor browsers. Carewolf (talk)

Platforms and Continued Life?[edit]

Are these sections really needed? Both of them contain just a single sentence that repeats information found earlier in the article, so I think I'm going to remove them for now. EvJeremy (talk) 15:29, 16 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

KF5 Porting[edit]

How should it be indicated on this, and other KDE (Plasma, or whatever it is, its gotten confusing >.>) programs that "program X is ported/being ported/won't be ported/etc to KF5/Plasma 5? --DSA510 Pls No Hate 04:46, 4 November 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Merge this article into Falkon thanks?[edit]

There is a brand new KDE web browser named Falkon merging over QupZilla and Konqueror, which Konqueror is fatally aging that KDE users think. This article can be part of the histories sections in Falkon just like QupZilla. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:33, 14 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kget Merge[edit]

Per Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/KGet I have technically completed the merge in promptly but the result could do with tidy.Djm-leighpark (talk) 22:45, 26 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Djm-leighpark: Thanks for preventing deletion, at least. However, I think it would be better to improve the article a little bit, and keep it on its own. KDE Plasma Desktop Environment has been developing quite fast in recent years, and Konqueror is a bit outdated, no longer used either as web browser (Firefox is the default app for that in KDE neon) or file manager (Dolphin is the default app for that in KDE neon) by most KDE users. However, unlike Konqueror, KGet is still actively developed and used by many users. It is already listed in Wikipedia here and here. Furthermore, as for notability, a Google search of KGet "download manager" has listed "About 11,100 results" for me today. Veritas.vos.Liberabit.58 (talk) 11:31, 29 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
