To begin with, code like

if(navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape") != -1){
        document.onclick = clickHandlerNS;
if(navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1){
        document.onclick = clickHandlerIE;

presumes that there are only two browsers out there, which is false. While I
can make Konqueror identify itself as Mozilla, and have stuff working, I
should not have to tweak the browser configs.
