I certainly trust konqueror more than firefox. Its anti-popup feature is designed in a more
user-friendly way which allows it to be on all the time (user friendly, just-works security is a great
achievement), and it actually works.
Secondly, it seems to be designed based on solid understanding and best principles, rather than
trying to take market share from IE. Extensions are installed in the normal, distro way, rather than
being allowed directly from a url on the web. It's only recently that firefox has enforced
pre-authorisation for downloads. Before that, the bad security vs. competitiveness issues in firefox
were pretty obvious for all to see. I'm not sure that has changed, despite some fixing of gaping
holes as afterthoughts.
