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)."

"Everything including replacing insecure client apps like IE and Outlook."

The key operative here being 'and'. ;)

Can you tell me if I were to browse the web with IE yet use, lets say Pegasus, as my email client what the odds/risk would be to me that I came across a web site that compromised my security? 1 in 10? 1 in 1,000? 1 in 1,000,000? Or perhaps somewhere along the lines of being killed in a car wreck several times over?

Ok, I think this makes 102. ;)
