How do speed up konqueror as fast as Firefox?

I need to get konqueror MUCH faster. It's so slow to connect to sites. And when it does, it takes forever to connect to each of the servers to get the images needed. Firefox and IE(even under wine) are blazing fast. Firefox connects and completely downloads in 3 seconds. Konqueror connects in three seconds and almost renders it but gives up after 15 seconds. This is just one example. Every site is pretty much the same effect. It always takes about 3 seconds for Konqueror to get a reply from the server. I'm using Kubuntu on my desktop and laptop. Both have the same result. I also got similiar results on Suse 9.3 . Please help.
