Re: [SLE] Mozilla 0.9 Released
Other problem of Konqi, a piece of software should inform you of the things
that is doing, in most of the cases that doesnt happen with Konqi, lets say
you have a link and you click on it, in a browser 2 things must happen (at

1) The pointer of the mouse should shnge to hourglass or any other icon that
tells you that is "doing something" (the standard is that the mouse pointer
changes and the browser logo animation starts)

2)on the status bar of the browser it should tell yuo some protocol
information, "contacting web site", the resolved IP address, "getting
items", "downloading page at 4KB/ps", etc.

The most important is the second one, because the first one just only tells
you that is ding something, but lets say that you DNS is down, you only will
find out that just getting the info of the status bar, because you will see
the domain is not resolved to its IP address.

I think those are very important features for a web browser, and Mozilla and
Opera supports them

Just my opinion

| Can't say that I've tried enough printing with Konqi to say. I was

| If this is the case, I'd definately report it using so that
