Konqueror. Um. As a web brower. Right. It generally works. However, most sites I use complain about an incompatible browser. It also loads/renders sites slower than Chrome or Firefox.
It still does the KIO stuff I love though! smb:/ is something I really miss in XFCE. (Although I hear rumors that it’s coming to Thunar soon!)
So…today I noticed that it’s Spring! Since it’s spring, I think it’s time for something new. I’ve been very well set in XFCE for quite some time, especially since KDE 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 never felt right. I loved KDE 3.x series so I was hoping that KDE 4 would be even better.
Running Arch linux, there’s a whole wiki on it at wiki.archlinux.org. I went with a base install, so pacman -S kdebase. Adjust slim.conf and .xinitrc and whala! I have a KDE desktop. I have to admit, it’s pretty. Composting helps add a nice touch.
Round one: Initial appearance… 7/10
