More Mozilla RC1 Reviews

Thursday April 25th, 2002

Anonman writes: "c|net's article Don't Miss the Thrilla from Mozilla is quite positive. Their only complaint seemed to be a problem with Mozilla reading a Netscape profile. The reviewers liked Mozilla's quicklaunch, tabbed browsing and price, going so far as to suggest that 1.0 'may actually best its two most powerful competitors.'

The LinuxPlanet review Evaluating Mozilla 1.0 Candidate 1 pits Mozilla against Opera with good results. Opera seems to do slightly better in a couple of his performance tests. The reviewer found that installing Flash and Acrobat plugins was a breeze and concludes with the statemeny: 'I look forward to the production release of Mozilla 1.0 and believe it will be stable, speedy, easy to use and of high value. Linux users would do well to give it a try. '"

UPDATE! NewsForge has a nice little piece from Robin. With tasty bits like "Tabbed browsing is one of those features you don't know you need until you have it. Once you have it and get used to it, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it" and "I think we're going to see a lot more positive reviews of Mozilla before long -- and not just in leading-edge tech media, either" this short review is worth a read.

Here is yet an other RC1 review, this time from ZDNet. Quite positive, seems to get most of the stuff right, and really, really likes the fact that "Mozilla is completely free: no fees and no strings attached." You can find the review here: <> Also, what's even cooler, is that I found this from Yahoo's listing of most e-mailed content ( <> ), which means this review is being spread around quite a bit!
