In KDE SC 4.5.0 it's possible to use a WebKit part for rendering in Konqueror. I don't think it's on by default (I could be wrong) and I believe I've installed all the requirements for it... How do I enable it?

I figured out how to switch it...

View -> View mode -> webkit

But you must be on a web page first. Problem is that this setting doesn't stick. I can't find a permanent setting. Does one exist?

I just found an article posting how to do it for kubuntu.

The short of it is configure the file association for text/html (embedding) and set the first as webkit. I'm sure you should do it for application+xml/xhtml too. Maybe some others.
