2 Kio-Sword Screenshots:
Kio-Sword project is a kioslave for the KDE environment. KDE uses kioslaves to access files from many different sources or protocols. For example, the file:/ protocol is used for all local file access, http:/ is used for web access, and the help:/ protocol/ioslave is another way to access the help files in the KDE Help Center.

Kio-Sword adds the sword:/ protocol to your system for easy access to Sword modules. Just type sword:/ in Konqueror's location bar, and you'll be presented with a list of modules you can browse as a web page. If you know exactly where you want to go, you can get there quicker - e.g. type sword:/KJV/John 3:16 for John 3:16 in the King James version.

Kio-Sword features hyperlinked cross references (for example in commentary modules) and hyperlinked Strongs numbers and morphological tags (in modules that include them). Basic search functionality is also included, as well as the ability to customise the page using various options, and by providing your own CSS file.
