The other guy mentioned the gz
auto-unziping-without-rename feature, I'll tackle the
It could be that the server isn't sending a
Content-Length header, and hence Konqueror dosn't know
how big the file is, and hence dosn't know what
percentage of the file it's downloaded.
This would occur if the server is compressing the
file(s) on the fly, and hence dosn't know beforehand
what the size of the file is, and hence can't return
the filesize itself!
