Browse your directories, surf the web, view files: do everything with Konqueror
Multi-purpose, and oh-so flexible.
Other alternatives have turned users away.
Konqueror is a program that falls into many categories simultaneously. Partly because it serves as a file scanner. as well as to surf the Internet, but also because it’s almost obsolete. Early adopters have stayed faithful, though.
The story of Konqueror’s name is pretty well known: "First came the Navigator, then Explorer, now it’s the turn of the Konqueror", a fun take on the most popular browsers of the mid-90s (Netscape Navigator, Internet Explorer, and Konqueror). The main weapon in Konqueror’s artillery was its powerful KHTML navigation engine.
Konqueror is more than a browser: it is a file explorer for Windows, able to handle ZIP files and preview images, documents and more. It supports FTP and SFTP, which avoids the need for an external application to manage content on a server. Konqueror also supports extraction of audio tracks from CDs.
Konqueror still has things to offer, although the default file manager for KDE is Dolphin these days.
