Latest Konqueror = 2005 from KDE 3.5.4-26.el5.centos.1 Red Hat

renders <ol type="a"> as digits. Its also got a bad rendering fault with
some CSS items (cuts the top off).

Last Chromium = 2011 

"Suspension of the maintenance announcement

I won't update Chromium binary rpms any more, because Chromium-14 hits a
bug in binutils that CentOS/RHEL 64bit edition has. Actually I had built
32bit version of Chromium-14 with my modification, so if I provides
special tool-chain for building it on 64bit edition, I can continue to
maintenance probably. However I think binaries that are built on my own
tool-chain are no longer for CentOS-5. So I suspend the work until the
bug is fixed in CentOS/RHEL."

The links do not exist.

Suppose I will have to locate all <ol type ....> and manually changed
them :-(   I just wish HTML and the browsers would remain stable !
