Konqueror is a file and web browser and application viewer. It is the official browser of KDE. Konqueror uses KHTML as it's layout engine. Konqueror was first released on May 12, 2000 as part of KDE 1.90[1] which was a beta release. The first stable release of Konqueror was on October 23, 2000 as part of KDE 2.0.[2] Konqueror supports HTML 4.01, CSS 2.1, CSS 3 selectors, SSL, Java, JavaScript, DOM2, partial DOM3, and Netscape plug-ins including Flash.[3] In 2002, Apple Inc. made a fork of KHTML called WebKit and used it in their Safari web browser. In KDE 4.4 and higher, there is an option to use the WebKit engine in Konqueror.
