The multi-talented file manager and browser

AFAICT you've covreed all the bases with this answer!

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.

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.
