I know very little about Konqueror, never used KDE.  Galeon is just
chrome on top of the Mozilla engine, basically, and Mozilla does have a
decent userbase on multiple platforms.  I usually find it worth coding
for Mozilla anyway, as for my money it's the closest browser to W3C of
those in common usage.

Really I think we should all code completely W3C strict and then add all
browser compatibility hacks as an afterthought.  With an alert saying
"your browser is broken, please contact the manufacturer".  :-)

I always cringe when I see people refer to the MSDN or Netscape
references as authoritative sources on DOM/javascript issues - go W3C
folks!  It's not like their reference standards aren't available.  Open,
peer-reviewed standards are the only reason the web exists, and they're
the only way it will continue to be useful.
