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)."

"When compared to traffic deaths, your whole premise behind that is that those figures were a result of web browsing. "

Wrong. Not "a result of web browsing". You're again tryin to change the the whole discussion.

You said: "What the 'IE security bashers' don't tell you is that the probability of your computer being compromised because of an 'IE security hole' is less than you getting killed (several times over) in a car wreck."

And I'll repeat _Every_ NIMDA exploit of a user's PC was the result of _an_ _IE_ _security_ _hole_.

How about you admit that your original statement doesn't hold water or tell me that you still stand by your original claim as quoted above.
