Konqueror is the KDE file manager, browser, and viewing application. It is part of the kdebase distribution, so resources and download information for Konqueror can also be found on the KDE Web site (http://www.kde.org). It is HTML 4.0 compliant, and supports Javascript, bidirectional scripts, SSL, almost all of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) 1 and most of CSS 2, and can house Java applets. As a file manager, it can display files in either tree or icon view, allows copying/moving/deleting by either drag-and-drop or cut/paste/delete, and provdes file properties and the ability to change file attributes. It automatically updates directories or deletes files without the user having to refresh or reload the directory. Konqueror can also view many different file types. It uses components (parts) to view various types of files; this functionality is not within Konqueror itself. This means that if you want to view a file that cannot already be viewed by a preexisting part, all you have to do is write such a part; there's no need to modify Konqueror itself.
