Version: (using KDE KDE 3.2.1)
Installed from: Mandrake RPMs
I have been testing the performance of various browsers for Linux and have found Konqueror to be the fastest loading a page initially, either from the network or from the hard disk. However, the back/forward performance is considerably slower than Firefox or Mozilla. My recorded times indicate that it takes twice the time for a page to be loaded when going back or forward to it than it does for it to be loaded initially.
I have noted this behavior on two different Linux boxes, using Mandrake or Knoppix. I would appreciate it if someone could tell me if this is a bug, or a misconfiguration, and whether it can be fixed.
Can you attach a test page w/ JS timers?

Go back or forward to the page to see the time difference from the initial load
Hmm, I think you need to save the testcase to the hard disk so the initial time isn't mostly spent in downloading the file.
Has anyone been able to reproduce this? I can still reproduce it on my Fedora Core 2 box. This bug ruins KHTML performance on back and forward, and makes Konqueror much slower than Mozilla. I have spent a few minutes looking at the code, but if someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.
Confirmed, kde-3.2.2, rh80. Initial load time on my box was .08 seconds, onreload (or forward/back) 0.44 seconds
Confirmed. KDE 3.3.2 Debian unstable on Althon XP 1600+
Initial load time: 0.10s
Hitting refresh: 0.10s
Going back to or forward to the page: 0.39s
Strange. I've noticed that konqueror's back performance is quite poor sometimes but I've never thought about it before.

hi, I have similar experiences with hitting back/forward in konqueror. On a comparision of browsers a few months ago, i read that safari 2.0 was a lot faster on this issue compared to konqi. So maybe there are some easy fixes/optimalisations to be found in the recently opened CVS history of webkit? Or maybe some mac-developers can explain in 10 minutes what their main changes were on this issue...?
the comparision is on http://www.howtocreate.co.uk/browserSpeed.html , if that might help. It's using konqueror 3.2 but I still have the same experience with 3.4
I can confirm it, but it does not only affect reloading a page, rendering a page is inacceptably slow. Even if a simply built web-interface to setup the internet router is this slow.
This error exists already, as long as I use KDE 3.x, it is finally time to increase speed. I used it on different boxes; all the same: arch, crux and debian.
