Salon on Mozilla

Tuesday March 12th, 2002

A number of people have submitted this article, and while it's not really news, it's just another example of how Mozilla is starting to win people over. This is also beneficial to the evangelism efforts going on.

He made this simple statment: "For an end user, there are two respects with which Mozilla is noticably better than MSIE. One is that it works on Linux. The other is that it's faster at loading pages on Mac OS."

Yes, I do find it better than IE. However, most end users are unlikely to find it since the features are scattered across several items (privacy&security/images block animation, advanced/scripts&windows block popups, window resizing) in the already somewhat confusing preferences dialog. And to make things really nice, you have to do selective (ad) image blocking, and that's somewhat involved.
