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)."

#16 Obviously biased list

Tux, your list is obviously biased towards Mozilla 1.0. While I can't comment on Netcaptor or IE 5.5 for Mac, you left out many features that IE 6.0 has that Mozilla 1.0 does not have. It is clear to me that you carefully constructed this list to make Mozilla look so much better than IE 6.0 at first glance. I am sure that was your agenda, which is fine. However, if you are trying to construct an objective list, this is far from it.
