How to make Gmail work in Konqueror (with chat window)

So, finally after quite a while I got to know, how to make gmail play nice with Konqueror. That still does not mean that it is perfect, but it is usable at least.

  1. get the webkit rendering for konqueror (I have it by default in Interpid repos)
  2. set the browser identification to Mozilla 1.7.3 (not Firefox, not Safari, mozilla 1.7.3 specifically)
  3. go to gmail and try it out

It seems to be working just fine at my station. There are of course issues with other sites 😦 (It seems that the text documents in google docs work decently as well. The spreadsheets do not, however).

Is there a way to make webkit the default rendering engine in konqueror?
