Konqueror  is an excellent Linux (K Desktop Environment) browser, which is
often  misunderstood  and  even dishonoured by Webmasters all  across  the
globe.  Linux  has  got a diverse collection of  browsers  whose  codebase
varies.  Konqueror is probably more influential than you imagine. Its ren-
dering engine, KHTML, is being used by Safari, which is the default brows-
er  of Mac OSX users. Such users, on the contrary, more rarely suffer from
browser discrimination. Don't expect your users to tolerate incompatibili-
ties.  If you lose 1% of your visitors, it is definitely worth mending the
errors.  The  only reason why I don't use Konqueror regularly is the  fact
it's  discriminated against. That aside, it's a fast and powerful  browser
with plenty of add-on features and excellent desktop integration.
