Konqueror

Konqueror

Konqueror supports basic file management on local UNIX filesystems, from simple cut/copy and paste operations to advanced remote and local network file browsing.

Konqueror is also an Open Source web browser with HTML 4.01 compliance, supporting Java applets, JavaScript, CSS 1, CSS 2.1, as well as Netscape plugins (for example, Flash or RealVideo plugins).

Furthermore, Konqueror is a universal viewing application, capable of embedding read-only viewing components in itself to view documents without ever launching another application.

Konqueror used to be the default file manager for KDE, but in the latest release, it has been replaced by Dolphin.
