Seems like reconq could soon become a good alternative to existing browsers. Unfortunately for Kubuntu there is only 0.2.0 in the repositories? Are there any alternative repositories out there?

I have just seen your roadmap and have some questions and suggestions:
- Will the adblock implementation of reconq have an autoupdate-function? That is something really missing with konqueror.
- Is there the possibility to implement a better cookie-handling? -> https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145278
- Could you have a look at the Fullerscreen addon for Firefox, http://disruptive-innovations.com/products/index.html ? The functionallity would be really cool to have it in a KDE browser.

adblock will have it, yes. And cookie handling seems ok also in 0.3. About the fullscreen idea.. don't know if we'll have time for. At least for 0.4

from kde system monitor, i saw that the kio process from rekonq was not being terminated when i stop the browser (from close button or killed from system monitor). is this more to the behavior of kde kio process or rekonq it self doesn't kill its child process (CMIIW)?

thanks for the answer.

Uhm.. can you be a little more precise? If you stop/kill rekonq (a kde app, in general) after have started a download or a internet connection, it's quite normal download continues to be performed or internet connection continues until it expires.
Hope this responses your question.

this is what i mean. i've captured some screenshot from system monitor:

1. kio_file process when rekonq still running
http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/7nYd1JTJSCQ99AlKoOHkQA?feat=directlink

2. and this is kio_file process after i close rekonq (terminate/kill)
http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/1EHuHaS5wWWa-fnbQEblug?feat=directlink

you can see, there is one kio_file process that didn't stopped, when i close rekonq and it still running until i kill it. i didn't running any download or any other background process using rekonq.

I really like rekonq!

Could you please add video/audio stream plugin (like firefox/chromium with mplayer/vlc plugins)?

the mplayerplug-in just work on my system. Please check your webkit related settings

I have this option enabled and I also have mplayerplug-in, so I don't know why it's not working then. I guess it's something about the package in kubuntu karmic (?) Another thing I couldn't manage to work is the gmail webpage either

But I wouldn't like to seem thankless, I really like rekonq, and I'm trying to get some positive feedback to improve it, if possible :)

Best!

any other people having this issues with mplayerplug-in, gmail or a pdf reader within rekonq, or is it just me? is it something I could install/configure to this regard?

another issue is when the bookmarks toolbar is enabled, then the URL bar is getting too small

Could you please add a plugin for pdf files (acroread, or okular better)?

Thanks!

a couple of features more that would improve rekonq a lot:

- a password manager for specific locations to save user and password information (maybe through kwallet?)

- when rekonq is loading a file or something it would be good to get the feedback of % done, like chromium does. this way the user could know that the browser is not hung but still working (firefox does not have this either)

Movable toolbars like in the 2.0 would be nice.

Adblocking feature is a must have, imho.

I love the speed of this, tho. Thanks.

... to the right app.
I have some ftp sites in my bookmarks that I often use on konqueror. Rekonq cannot use them, which is ok for me (rekonq is a browser, not an "everything to anyone app" like konqueror). Problem is: when I click on the bookmark (or any link to a ftp site) rekonq gives an "Unknown error" instead of opening the site with a proper app (like konqueror).
Adding an option to such cases will be great.
Otherwise, great browser! Many thanks for your work!

you're right, sorry for this. Anyway rekonq will be able to browse ftp sites in 0.4. I'll take a look if there is a "partial" fix for this in 0.3
