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)."

"But arielb would be compromised. There are any number of ways that arielb would be compromised including NIMDA."

Your use of the word 'would' has more holes than a 10 pound block of swiss cheese. Better phrased 'it is possible that arielb could encounter a web page that compromises his/her security, but he/she is more likely to get killed first'

Now we have two phrases to pick at. Getting killed in a car wreck several times over, and the number of holes in 10 pound block of swiss cheese. ;)
