Many of '''Konqueror''''s features can be used regardless of what you are viewing: for example, multiple tabs, the sidebar, window frames and bookmarks. This makes it not only a powerful web-browser, but also a powerful general-purpose application.

 +
<!--T:6-->
 +
Using tabs in '''Konqueror''' is similar to using tabs in many other KDE applications. You can create a new tab by going to the, <menuchoice>File</menuchoice> menu. You can find ways to interact with tabs by right-clicking any tab you currently have open. You can also move tabs by clicking with the middle mouse button and dragging them across the tab bar.

Bookmarks allow you to save URLs so you can easily load them later, from Konqueror or even from an external application like [[Special:myLanguage/Plasma/Krunner|Krunner]].

In order to save a web page in your bookmarks, navigate to it and then click in <menuchoice>Bookmarks -> Add Bookmark</menuchoice> (default shotcut is <keycap>Ctrl+B</keycap>). Next time we click on <menuchoice>Bookmarks</menuchoice> we'll see the new bookmark in the list.

To rename bookmarks and group them in folders, go to <menuchoice>Bookmarks -> Edit Bookmarks...</menuchoice>.
 +
 +
===Sessions=== <!--T:43-->
 +
 +
<!--T:44-->
 +
Sessions are saved Konqueror status. You can i.e. save a Konqueror session when you have certain web pages opened in Konqueror (in any combination of tabs or windows), and you will be able to open then whenever you want from the sessions list, and they will be opened the same way you had them when saving the session.
 +
 +
<!--T:45-->
 +
To save a session, make sure the only opened Konqueror instances are those you want to save, and then go to <menuchoice>File -> Sessions -> Save As...</menuchoice> and choose a name for the session. Then, you will have the session listed in <menuchoice>File -> Sessions</menuchoice>. You can later manage your different sessions from <menuchoice>File -> Sessions -> Manage...</menuchoice>.
 +
 +
===Frames=== <!--T:7-->
 +
 +
<!--T:8-->
 +
''Frames'' allow you to view multiple locations, documents or websites in a single window under a single tab by splitting the window. This can be used e.g. to view multiple web pages at once, to copy files from one location to another (either from one folder to another or from a remote location like an FTP site or a shared network folder), view or compare two documents at the same time and for many other possibilities.
 +
To use frames, either go to the <menuchoice>Window</menuchoice> menu or right-click on the status bar at the bottom of the window and select either <menuchoice>Split view left/right</menuchoice> or <menuchoice>Split view top/bottom</menuchoice>. You can also create or remove frames using the short-cuts displayed in the <menuchoice>Window</menuchoice> menu for each action. You can control each view by clicking on it and interacting with it as usual.</translate>

'''Konqueror''' is the built-in web browser. It has fast, standards-compliant HTML and JavaScript rendering engines, '''KHTML''' and '''KJS''' respectively, which are most noted for being Apple's choice for developing the popular '''Webkit''' rendering engine, chosen for its speed and standards-compliance. It also has support for various '''Firefox'''-compatible plug-ins, ''Java'', several image formats, ''Secure Socket Layer (SSL)'' connections and more. To see all of '''Konqueror''''s supported standards, navigate to, <menuchoice>about:konqueror/specs</menuchoice> in a Konqueror window.

Since Nokia ported '''Webkit''' into their toolkit in ''Qt 4.5'', there has been a lot of discussion about replacing '''KHTML''' with '''Webkit''' in '''Konqueror'''. The KDE developers have written a '''WebKit''' component '''(KPart)''' which can replace '''KHTML''' which is still the default rendering engine. At some point in the future that default might change, but for now the '''WebKit KPart''' is an optional component you will have to install if you want to use it. Besides '''Konqueror''', there are a few other KDE browsers in development which make use of '''WebKit''' by default, ([http://code.google.com/p/arora/ Arora] and [[Special:myLanguage/Rekonq|Rekonq]], for example.)
  
'''Konqueror''' is an optional file manager.

The multi-talented file manager and browser

General features

Many of Konqueror's features can be used regardless of what you are viewing: for example, multiple tabs, the sidebar, window frames and bookmarks. This makes it not only a powerful web-browser, but also a powerful general-purpose application.

Features

  • Powerful and flexible file manager
  • Standards-compliant KHTML browser engine
  • Embedded viewing of files thanks to KParts
  • Multiple split views and tabs
  • Sidebars and extensions to provide additional functionality
  • Integration with other KDE applications like KGet Download Manager and Akregator Feed Reader
  • Remote and pseudo-filesystem file management through KIO

Tabs

Using tabs in Konqueror is similar to using tabs in many other KDE applications. You can create a new tab by going to the, File menu. You can find ways to interact with tabs by right-clicking any tab you currently have open. You can also move tabs by clicking with the middle mouse button and dragging them across the tab bar.

Bookmarks

Bookmarks allow you to save URLs so you can easily load them later, from Konqueror or even from an external application like Krunner.

In order to save a web page in your bookmarks, navigate to it and then click in Bookmarks -> Add Bookmark (default shotcut is Ctrl+B). Next time we click on Bookmarks we'll see the new bookmark in the list.

To rename bookmarks and group them in folders, go to Bookmarks -> Edit Bookmarks....

Sessions

Sessions are saved Konqueror status. You can i.e. save a Konqueror session when you have certain web pages opened in Konqueror (in any combination of tabs or windows), and you will be able to open then whenever you want from the sessions list, and they will be opened the same way you had them when saving the session.

To save a session, make sure the only opened Konqueror instances are those you want to save, and then go to File -> Sessions -> Save As... and choose a name for the session. Then, you will have the session listed in File -> Sessions. You can later manage your different sessions from File -> Sessions -> Manage....

Frames

Frames allow you to view multiple locations, documents or websites in a single window under a single tab by splitting the window. This can be used e.g. to view multiple web pages at once, to copy files from one location to another (either from one folder to another or from a remote location like an FTP site or a shared network folder), view or compare two documents at the same time and for many other possibilities. To use frames, either go to the Window menu or right-click on the status bar at the bottom of the window and select either Split view left/right or Split view top/bottom. You can also create or remove frames using the short-cuts displayed in the Window menu for each action. You can control each view by clicking on it and interacting with it as usual.

Konqueror as a web browser

The Konqueror Web Browser

Konqueror is the built-in web browser. It has fast, standards-compliant HTML and JavaScript rendering engines, KHTML and KJS respectively, which are most noted for being Apple's choice for developing the popular Webkit rendering engine, chosen for its speed and standards-compliance. It also has support for various Firefox-compatible plug-ins, Java, several image formats, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connections and more. To see all of Konqueror's supported standards, navigate to, about:konqueror/specs in a Konqueror window.

KHTML vs. Webkit

Since Nokia ported Webkit into their toolkit in Qt 4.5, there has been a lot of discussion about replacing KHTML with Webkit in Konqueror. The KDE developers have written a WebKit component (KPart) which can replace KHTML which is still the default rendering engine. At some point in the future that default might change, but for now the WebKit KPart is an optional component you will have to install if you want to use it. Besides Konqueror, there are a few other KDE browsers in development which make use of WebKit by default, (Arora and Rekonq, for example.)

Konqueror as a file manager

Konqueror uses the Dolphin KPart for file management, giving it all the abilities of Dolphin. It includes many configuration options under the Settings menu -> Configure Konqueror... -> File Manager configuration dialogue. Changes applied here will affect Dolphin and vice versa. For all of Konqueror's file-management capabilities, check Dolphin's page.

The Konqueror File Browser

Konqueror is also a universal viewing application, thanks to its ability to embed audio, video and document viewers.

Tutorials

Using Mousegestures

I'd like Konqueror to be my default file manager

Starting from KDE Software Compilation 4.2, you can change the default file manager through System Settings -> Default Applications

Konqueror's WebKit view mode

Since KDE Software Compilation 4.5, Konqueror can use Webkit engine to browse webpages via KParts technology. Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> File Manangement -> File Associations, search html type, then click Embedding tab and move Webkit(kwebkitpart) up.

Using GMail's Web Interface in Konqueror

This forum page deals with improving the display of GMail within Konqueror

Hints and Tips

Look up a Wikipedia entry

Can you look up words in Wikipedia in record-speed? Imagine a colleague comes in and talks about ISCSI. Don't you know what it is? No problem, just type

wp:ISCSI

in your Konqueror browser and ENTER. You will be shown the Wikipedia (wp) article on iscsi.

Format a man page for easy reading

Type in

man:rsync

to get the whole information about using rsync, in a form that's easy on the eye and better for printing, too.

Find other capabilities on Konqueror

For more shortcuts, have a look at Konqueror -> Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> Web Browsing -> Web Shortcuts.

You can also add your own. See Web Shortcuts for details.
