where do i get Konqueror extensions?

It took me a lot of hunting around before i finally landed here with some hope!!
I recently installed Kubuntu which has KDE3.5 (i believe...). I used to love working on KDE before, but this time it impressed me a lot more. So i shifted to KDE standard applications figuring that this may be a lot more faster than using other apps as well as i'd be saving up on my disk space. So i quit GAIM for Kopete, Thunderbird for KMail, Amarok for xmms/rhythmbox. But i am finding a glitch in shifting to Konqueror from Firefox. No doubt Konqueror is awsome!!! but without the extensions i feel a lot is missing.
Some google search showed that they do exist for Konqueror, but scattered around. So... my question... Is there a site where i could choose from Konqueror extensions (centralised like FF i mean). I am sure i am missing something in that google search ('cmon now.. IE Beta too has them now!!!). If not... are KDE guys coming up with one?

RE: where do i get Konqueror extensions?

There are not as many people writing extensions for Konqueror, at least from what I've seen. It is probably just a popularity issue. On the other hand, installing them in Konqueror is also not done through a little convenient menu. I use konqueror as my main browser (usually only switching to Firefox when I have the rare compatibility issue). Most of the things I used as extensions in Firefox are built into konqueror.

You might be able to find service menu add-ons at or

If there's Firefox extensions you simply cannot live without, you might be stuck with Firefox.
