Well, I'm replying before I read the 100 or so replies to this thread that 
I've not gotten to yet (eeeek!), but in Konquer 3.5, the site is completely 
broken.  The tabs are empty outlines.  Every block takes up the entire width 
of the page.  The background of everything is white.  

Next up, all the light blue links are on a white background, and the contrast 
is way too low.  It's hard for me, with halfway decent eyes and a good 
monitor, to read the link text.

On a scale of 1-5, -2.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
