Far from being dumbed down, for a while I was using Dolphin in KDE 4 and
Konqueror (3.5) in CentOS 5 and kept being utterly frustrated that
Konqueror was so much less able as a file manager.  If filtering by
extension is what you need, you do it in much the same way as you would
in Windows - use the Details view, ensure that Type is one of the
details shown, and select that column - simple! :-)

And can you do that for multiple types?

Actually, this is simple.  In Konqueror:

	Tools -> View Filter

This feature is not available in Dolphin.

In KDE-4.6 there was a string filter available in Konqueror. In 4.7, it has gone missing. For some tasks, this means a large decrease in usability -- looking for files in large directories. So, I switched to using Dolphin. I find that Dolphin doesn't have the filter by extension tool.

And, I didn't previously mention that Dolphin doesn't have Bookmarks. I think that I can partially replace that with places.
