My point was simply there is still quite a bit of information out there, and

it's going to take a massive PR push to change that mindset. Most people
could care less.
Any and each dot/kdenews article, any release announcement in the last >5
years clearly states this. You use as a counterexample an automatic generated
tagline from google, which is not a source. Which other massive PR action do
you want to do, apart from stating again and again this as it was done in the
It depends on the set of default. There is no default browser for Plasma.
It's a browser shipped with KDE Applications. Can you find anywhere that
the default browser for Plasma?
Again, that is a bit pedantic. Anyone who has used KDE or whatever it's name
du jour associate Konqueror with KDE.
Anyone who comes from Windows used to associate Internet with a blue E. Many
Kubuntu users (which are not so few in the world of Linux-based distributions)

The Plasma team has not stated anything about the default browser or the

If KDE (or again whatever it's called) wants to get out of
the browser business, that's fine;
but it needs to be stated and not on some mailing list. Put it on the webpage
This is not about going out of browser business.
That all said, I get the point about KDE Plasma Workspaces and KDE Applications;
for the purposes of this thread however, it's a distinction without a difference.
I disagree; if you want the best desktop, so Plasma, experience, the current
kdelibs4 Konqueror is not so different from Firefox or rekonq.
