Konqueror suppoirt isn’t a new Gmail feature

Internet

The Gmail / Google Mail crew seems to have really been hard at work as of late adding features over the last few months including:

  • AIM support
  • coloured labels
  • group chat
  • new emoticons
  • free IMAP
  • view images as a slideshow
  • increased attachment limit
  • and lots more stuff

However Konqueror (my favourite browser) is still limited to the basic HTML interface. For now it's perfectly fine though, I still dislike most AJAX and prefer being served static pages anyway, they're far more reliable and act in a more predictable way.

I just wish there was a way to remove the "you are a second class citizen on our service that we don't care as much about" message from the top of the screen…

Fully featured browser? Thanks!
