I honestly don't know why ... KDE keeps maintaing Konqueror.

I know one good reason why people want to use it. Konq can still render absolute font sizes according to desktop pixel density, the way Gecko used to by default, but does no longer since FF4[1] in order to match the shrunken fonts stupidity of IE's & WebKit's arbitrary 4:3 16px = 12pt ratio. The new order that Konq resists allows pages that require absolute sizes to get their intended messages across to get their intended messages across.

e.g.:
http://fm.no-ip.com/Auth/Font/fonts-ptdemo96.html
http://fm.no-ip.com/SS/Moz/ptdemo96-120.png

3 of 4 get it right. The oddball matches the unintended result produced by IE, Safari, Chrome, ReKonq, SeaMonkey, other recent Geckos, and other WebKit browsers.
