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)."

"I think I've demonstrated that with strong data in the links I've posted in this thread."

Actually, you haven't. All you, and others, have done are site examples that involved email in one form or another. Everything that has been cited is first described by SARC as 'mass mailing worms' who have payloads of 'large scale emailing'.

It doesn't take a genius or Phd. to figure this out. We all know the devastation of email worms such as Melissa and ILOVEYOU even though they required the user to execute an attachment. Now imagine the consequences of something that only requires a person to view the email.

The point is, Asa, that you have made no case in refuting my initial statement to arielb. All that is left now is to nit pick over whether a person is more likely to killed in a car wreck once, twice, five times, ten times, etc.

Ok, 108 I think. ;)
