    Linux KDE users - try KONQUEROR - the unsung Browser hero


    Hi there.

    Reading all the browser choices available it's always been surprising to me that Linux users on KDE desktops seem to forget one of the most capable and configurable browsers around - KONQUEROR.

    With opensuse's KDE desktop it works perfectly -- videos as well (ensure adobe flash plugin is enabled -- to get firefox / Mozilla to play videos this plugin needs to be installed anyway) and it's EASILY configurable -- text fonts of the web site can be enlarged / made smaller without zooming the whole kybosh and the renderer (viewmode) can be changed from KHTML to webkit or whatever --I like KHTML for modern websites.

    Now if only I could get that POS from Ms called SILVERLIGHT to work via WINE or something then I could get Netflix / sky go etc to work on it. I'm sure there are better DRM solutions for Netflix etc to use than Silverlight.

    I only mention this browser because almost nobody ever mentions it -- but if you are running a KDE Linux desktop - either on a VM or as a Host it's worth looking at (and the application menu's aren't TINY on a big screen either).

Hi all For those that just want a KDE version of Linux Mint 17 QIANA -- it's now available -- I know you can install it from the main distro but there's less hassle in using a properly built KDE version than trying to fit all the bits and pieces together - especially over the top of other GUI's. ...
