"First of all starting a sentence with "You should" anything really isn't the way to go on this forum unless you are an Administrator and even that has been rare over the years"
you haven't seen my posts isn't?
about konqueror compared to other web browsers, it is a very good option but i have experienced problems with it going from not loading certain images to not working with flash on some sites
now, i have seen it working where others failed so it is a valid option
konqueror is a little limited if you compare it directly to the universe of addons from firefox and other web browsers but say that konqueror is not made for web browsing is going too far i think
about chrome spying on you, this has been said many times and afik it is true so please use another browser if you don't want to see your browsing history stored on google servers, iron is mentioned very often as a google free chrome browser(between other similar browsers)
opera should be considered on the list of options too, it can be configured and also there is some addons very similar to firefox, skins too
another great option that should be mentioned is seamonkey, perhaps with some compatibility problems but still a great browser
