MozillaZine

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 are replying to this message

". The probability of contracting a virus/worm via a web page has everything to do with what I am saying. "

And you're changing your argument in the middle of the debate. What happened to your original claim? 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." You said nothing about browsing the web.

I'm guessing that after you were educated (by some mozillazine posts, and undoubtedly by your own research) you realized that the original argument was unwinnable so you changed your claims.

Or am I reading you wrong and you still stand by your original claim?
