More Mozilla RC1 Reviews

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.

Chatzilla IS an independant effort that happens to be hosted on Mozilla.org rather than on Mozdev.org.

The HTML editor's target audiance isn't someone intrested in creating a site, it's the average user with little or no HTML skills who's trying to get something on a personal web page.

Anyone who followed the very slow progress of the mail and editor clients will know that they didn't take large ammounts of time away from the browser, and that the outliner developed for the mail client actually improved the browser.
