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.

Ha! Honestly, that's not really fair, is it? Opera's knowledge base <> -- accessible to everyone -- is without a doubt more than a just a collection of answers to frequently asked questions.

Whatever. A visit to Opera's newsgroups <news://> is also free; the ppl there are always quick to help those who have questions or want advise. In addition, registered users have access to an on-line help-desk for an unlimited time period.
