What is Konqueror?

I was looking at all the browsers that were out there, and what things were compatible
with what and I came across one I had never heard of Konqueror. I like to think of myself as knowing how to test everything on every platform, but not only hadn’t I heard of this browser, but it turns out, I can’t test it, because I don’t have the platform. HEre I have five computers, but that apparently that isn’t enough. Konqueror runs in Linux and Unix. I’m not running either of these platforms.

What is interesting is that it makes big news when something does support Konqueror. There is an article I found on Google about a Bank that supports it. Gee, now they know what it is like to have a OS that the rest of the world doesn’t have, just like those of us who use a Mac.

Of course, that isn’t to say it isn’t possible to run Konqueror on the Mac, since in theory, it has a Unix back end. In fact , Google found one blog where someone did manage to do so. It looks though it was difficult, and since I am quite happy with FireFox, I don’t think I’ll try this at home.
