KDE has its own as well:

Interesting things:

        * Support for bookmarks.
        * Navigation buttons (back, forward, up).
        * Recent file list.
        * Support for adding custom buttons to the toolbar.
        * Allow different viewing modes (basically, the same as in the
          file manager), although I don't see any API for that.
        * Static methods for simple tasks (getOpenURL, getSaveURL).

Why would the user care about changing this?
