 Breaking the Network Barrier

"KDE is, by design, a fully networked desktop. Network files are accessible as readily and easily as local files from most applications. This is accomplished through special protocol handlers built into KDE, known as I/O slaves. These handlers implement a specific network protocol such as HTTP, FTP, or IMAP, and transparently interact with applications when they try to open a URL that requires that protocol."
