I use Konqueror knowing fully that it's not state-of-the-art - it's my 
commodity browser - good for lots of simple* and not-so-simple things. The 
best part was (and perhaps still is) that I can open them at will and they're 
all independent processes and one instance crashing or locking up matters 
nothing to all the others. I can't say the same for Firefox, or Chrome, or 
SeaMonkey - all of which I also use for various things.

Really, I just want a decent web browser that I can open on its own any time I 
want, and Konqueror has been that browser for as long as I've used KDE, since 
the 3.x days.

* Simple like MythWeb, or my local community chat forum, or the local library, 
or SlashDot, or any random Google search, or pretty much anything that's 
largely read-only.

All I really need to "fix" is how to open multiple instances like I used to.
