Didn't really work on my computer. The content of the address bar could be seen changing
continuously between and, probably in a way similar to what happens with Safari.

Again, it didn't work. My address bar showed "", aligned to the right.
Sure, if you scroll all the way to the left you'll just see, but otherwise the
address shown is what I reported above.
Tested with Konqueror 3.5.5, KDE 3.5.5, kernel 2.6.21-r4 (gentoo), 64bit version.
