Comparatively Speaking...

Monday July 1st, 2002

Linux Online recently compared the major Linux browsers, including the Mozilla-based trio of Mozilla 1.0, Netscape 6.2 and Galeon. Reviewer Michael J Jordan praises Mozilla's stability, tabbed browsing, rendering and customisation.

As mentioned by fondacio on our forums, the International Herald and Tribune took a look at Mozilla, Opera and NeoPlanet (note that the site doesn't seem to work in some builds of Mozilla). Reviewer Lee Dembart says that "Mozilla is impressive and has it all over Opera." He especially likes the ability to block pop-ups, tabbed browsing and pipelining.

UPDATE! tuxracer writes: "I've put up a browser comparison list, comparing various features that affect usability and W3C standards compliance. It compares Mozilla 1.0, Netcaptor 7.01, Internet Explorer 6.0 (Windows), and Internet Explorer 5.x (Mac)."

"Hum... Do you call this "feature"?"

I sure do. Although, expectation may be a better term.

"I wonder if these are not so-called "ad- ons""

Nope. They are complete user-interfaces that incorporate IE for displaying web content. Of course, that doesn't stop one from calling a user interface an 'add-on' if they so desire to. Several of the items listed in the comparison are strictly UI 'centric', i.e., tabs, sidebar, etc.

"I think a list of all possible features comparing to Mozilla is very important"

Agreed! ;)
