David Faure is still listed as 'top' Konqueror developer(https://konqueror.org/developers/) so I guess he decided to maintain it, despite his request in 2014 and insistence that he did not have time to do it. ...I'd do it but my (programming) skills are not nearly good enuf for Konqueror. Rusty like an old boat that's been sitting in the harbor since WWII, :LOL:.
Please don't mis-interpret my queries, I'm all for putting QT4, and python2, also, to rest. I really do like the premise of KaOS even tho' there are just a few apps(like gkrellm) that I just cannot set free because there is, for me, no suitable alternative. I'll build them when needed, .
Thanks so much for the answers.
