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)."

"You still haven't responded to this:"

I have. Either you haven't read what I said or somehow just missed it. You keep comparing a number for a given day, such as 86,000, (a day or period that really feeds your security 'argument') and then you compare that to traffic fatalities for the same day/period. Finally, you turn around and say 'you see, you see, the statistics are terrible'.

The problem is that that type of reasoning is incorrect and that is what I have said at least twice already. What you need to do is look at the big picture here. It's kind of like someone saying that the chances of getting killed in a car wreck are higher than that of flying in a plane, and you saying 'no, wait, on 9/11/2001 600+ people were killed in a plane crash that day while only 110 were killed in a car wreck. The logic in your statistical reasoning is fundamentally flawed. ;)
