I use a lot of extensions, i depend on them for development, konqueror as a base is better I think than firefox as a base, but the extensions just can't be matched, that's because konqueror extensions have to be done in c or c++, can't remember which, they don't have an extension scripting language like firefox has. Currently only adblock is ported. Which is great, but it's not good enough, sadly.
Konqueror really benefited from the applewebkit upgrades of safari in khtml, no doubt about that, it's very solid now.
I don't know where you got that idea about firefox vs MSIE, that's just some MS spin you fell for, firefox does not have active x, which is a core access to the OS. Firefox will never have that, so firefox will never have that deep level vulnerability. Firefox has vulnerabilities, and if you read them carefully, most are not very serious, not like somebody tricking active x to install a rootkit into windows. No firefox user I have switched from MSIE has experienced ANY spyware infections. All MSIE users have these, no matter what MS does to try to stop it. XP SP 2 did not succeed in securing it, nothing MS has done has succeeded, because MSIE is insecure by design, it can never resolve that issue as long as active x exists.
