- Better rendering of websites. I'm not saying Konqueror sucks, I'm just saying that web designers do not target or test for Konq.
- Extensions. I actually don't care that Firefox has a million extensions, but three of them are now essential:
In all honesty, I couldn't compile it because of my broken Kubuntu installation so I thought, hey, why don't I just port this to KDE4/Qt4/CMake? Since the script was only a few lines it was quite easy and fast, and now there is hope for user script support in KDE4.
Here's a first screenshot of Konqueror (KDE4) running neofreko's sample script
var elms = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
This is still in "Proof Of Concept" stage; right now it simply executes any script matching the domain, it does not offer any of the GreaseMonkey functions (mostly, the cross-site XMLHttpRequest object) and is not optimized or secured in any form. But I believe both neofreko and I are committed to delivering this plugin and adjusting it to meet KDE's quality.
Our goal for now is full compatibility with existing GM scripts. It remains to be seen if it can be achieved.
It should appeared in KDE svn soon (watch for it in trunk/playground/base). Stay tuned!
