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.

We no longer have Konqueror, that i used for so many years, with and without KDE ... and i developed powerful habits and modes, relying in infinite splitting. Konqueror was an unsurpassed file manager, and i mostly ignored it as a browser. What i most of all miss in Dolphin is infinite splitting, and please may we have it back again! The next thing i miss is ... the vocabulary isn't coming back to mind ... View Profiles?


Listen ... thank you.

Who no longer has konqeror? Konqueror is still around. Really its only deficiency is in web browsing where few browsers are able to keep up with Firefox and Chrome.
