How to Set a Proxy in Konqueror

Konqueror is a web browser for Linux- and Unix-based computers running the KDE desktop environment. Like most web browsers, Konqueror can operate through a proxy server, making it an appropriate web browser for businesses that require their users to access the web through a proxy or firewall for security purposes. Set a proxy server in Konqueror to browse the web through a business or home network that requires users to connect through a proxy or firewall.
