You may hate to ask get but I'll be glad to reply :)  Konqueror is way
behind, imo, because Nautilus has a very advanced and mature rendering
engine for HTML and XML documents.  The Konqueror developers like to say
things like "most advanced browser" "all CSS2 supported" etc., but in
reality their parser, renderer, and DOM are very poor.  What this means is
they are sitting on their haunches pretending to be what Mozilla is.
Meanwhile Nautilus moves ahead with the Real Thing.

This works already.

Again not sure what you are getting at here but I can open an MPEG for
viewing from Nautilus no problem.

One question back to you: does Konqueror have an equivalent to Nautilus's
News pane?
