One of the handiest features of KDE Software (Kate, Konqueror, etc) is the ability to split the screen into vertical and horizontal chunks as much as the user wants.

But for some strange reason:
- Kile completely overlooked this feature
- Dolphin reduced it to merely 1 split
- Konsole splitting merely mirrors the output instead of giving a new terminal

As a result, I still edit my .tex in Kate, I still browse my files in Konqueror and I use Terminology (from e17) instead of Konsole. This feature is kind of a must for me, personally!

'this is why we have Konqueror' got me by surprise. Konqueror is much heavier than Dolphin, has webbrowsing capabilities and was abandoned some time ago (or am I wrong? did anybody take it over again?). Besides, the sidebar was dropped for Konqueror, and not for Dolphin. They are realy not interchangeable.

EDIT#1: Someone already mentioned this in 2017.
