Konqueror

To start surfing the Net with Konqueror, you'll need to connect to the Internet—it's a good thing we covered that in Chapter 9. Starting Konqueror as a browser is the same as starting Konqueror any other way. Most distributions, however, have an icon, either on the desktop or on Kicker itself, to start up Konqueror as a browser. The difference is that in the browser configuration, you generally set a home page (more on that later).

Konqueror does pretty much anything you expect from a graphical Web browser and some things you don't. You can go forward and back, save bookmarks (click Bookmarks in the menu bar), download files, and print pages. Because I am assuming that you have all used a browser before, I'll concentrate on the things that I think you will want to know. When you start Konqueror for the first time, there won't be any kind of home page set. What you will see is an introductory screen (Figure 10-1) that offers you some interesting choices and destinations.
