I'll be interested in how stable 0.9 is with the bug-fix.

By way of perspective, the Konqueror 2.1.1 provided in current
Debian-woody has yet to blow up on anything, including the most horrific
Front Page 4.0 sites I've found to throw at it.  Rendering is a bit
fallible, but OK.  Speed: passable.  Keybindings are sometimes a bit
jarring, but likewise OK.

RAM usage?  <grumble>  Look at all those damned kdeinit processes....
Plus one kfmexec, and "kdesud".  Total RSS = about 65 MB.  About 80MB
with four windows open.
