to me, the lineup was a bit unfair. Why was Konq included? It doesn't run on Windows.

Uhm, and IE not on non-windows-machines and Opera not on OS/2... Why should one compare only browsers on one platform?

IE has been the default Mac web browser for a long time now. Hopefully Safari will change that soon though.

Konqueror is based on the KHTML engine by the KDE developers, which Apple selected for their new Safari browser. I tried to use Konqueror on linux but I got fed up after some of the sites I went to rendered incorrectly because of CSS errors. I switched to Mozilla and the CSS errors went away.

This newspaper is named PC plus, nor Windows plus. You can run linux on PC.

As was stated above, this is PC Plus, not Windows Plus, or indeed Windows Answers which is from the same publisher.

PC Plus has regular linux coverage, normally consisting of at least two linux tutorials (one beginner and one advanced), various linux news stories and a description of linux support for all individual PCs which they review (which are not submitted as part of a group test). In issue 199, about 1/3 of the letters page was about linux after they had requested readers write in with their experiences. What other browsers available for a PC platform would you include?
