Since most people (at least to my knowledge) only use konqueror as a file manager and use firefox as they're browser perhaps the default should include firefox and another file manager rather than konqueror.

I agree to an extend...

Firefox is already included and Opera also (on the DVD, don't know about the mini).
Because some use firefox and some use Opera for browsing the internet, you can easily set them as default in KDE settings -> KDE components -> component chooser.

If they are not included on the mini (no experience with the mini), then I agree to include firefox at least :)

What's wrong with konqueror to browse files ? :)

Ya, I was talking about the mini I probably should have mentioned that. Anyway, if firefox was use then konqueror would be redundant (of course not fully). I think that it would be less redundant if a dedicated file browser was used instead.

yes, that's true...
but a lot of apps integrate well with konqueror, but yes, it would be nice to have a seperate manager just to browse files, so you don't need konqueror on the desktop when firefox is used :)

Okay, that's a reasonable reason.
