Konqueror offers:

- mime default actions
- opening path/index.html if pointed to path/ or path when operating
- for any hyperlink:
  - save link as
  - copy link address
  - open with        <--
  - preview with     <--

...as it does offer copy, move, open with and preview with for any file
in directory mode. Kpdf and likewise also nicely integrate their own
buttons into the toolbar, replacing the khtmlpart zoom ones and so on.

Vastly underestimated this thing is.
