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)."


#114 NIMDA does not require email

As I pointed out in detail in previous posts ( <http://www.mozillazine.or…=2329&message=103#103> ) and ( <http://www.mozillazine.or…=2329&message=104#104> ), I have personally dealt with major infections of NIMDA that have no connection whatsoever to email.

It is a mistake to think that NIMDA is only spread by email; I am inclined to believe that email is not even the primary method by which NIMDA is spread. As I have stated before, due to user ignorance, it is virtually impossible to determine the primary means by which it is spread. The only thing that we know for certain is that using Mozilla for email and web browsing will protect your workstation from being damaged from any of the IE and Outlook exploits.
