Sometimes it is good to have got a very simple browser without popup blocking and such things, even konqueror can be used for that. Some routers only work with popup windows which are blocked by default by firefox/chrome so it could be useful to have got a simple way to check it. But basically thats the only usecase where i use another browser. It does not really matter how much a browser is integrated into a desktop envronment. It has to work and should be fast. In most cases i only use chrome.
