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)."

#148 Contradicting yourself or changing topic again?

The following two quotes are from the same paragraph of your above post:

"The irony is, after all of this, that I don't really know if a person is more than likely to get killed in a car wreck several times over verses their system being compromised by browsing the web."

"What I do know in regards to the point that I have made, is that a person is more than likely to get killed than have their system compromised via web browsing with IE."

Are you contradicting yourself, or are you changing your argument so that it covers being killed under any circumstances?

Maybe you should change it to "a person is more likely to die than to be compromised by browsing the web" because I am sure we would all agree to that.
