Konqueror is a Linux browser, and, AFAIK, can only be used with the Linux K Desktop Environment, which means no Windows. Supposedly it supports as much CSS as IE, is a lot faster than other browsers, and has more features, but every distributor will tell you that.

CSS support: http://konqueror.org/css
General info: http://konqueror.org/


Safari is a Macintosh-only browser from what I can tell at http://www.apple.com/safari . It also seems to support a decent amount of CSS, etc., and seems to be an adequate browser.

However I haven't tried either of these, but they are functioning browsers, and they support enought things for most people to go on about their lives, as far as the Internet goes :-)

More info at http://konqueror.org and http://apple.com/safari .

Safari is based on KHTML, the rendering engine used in Konqueror. So they essentially use the same rendering engine. Apple contributed its enhancements back to the open source group working on Konqueror when they unvieled Safari, so newer versions of Konqueror should render webpages the same as Safari. Both have excellent CSS and standards support.

There is an open source project working on a port of Konqueror to Windows.

You can run anything on Windows with the right emulator software. For instance, http://pearpc.sourceforge.net/. This is a Power PC emulator designed to run on X86 platforms (Intel, Athlon). Very cool stuff, it allows Mac OS X and some variations of Linux to run inside of Windows.
