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)."

"The International Herald Tribune site has not been working correctly since the last site update, but the problem is not with Mozilla. The text of the articles doesn't show in IE either."

Hmm. The article doesn't display correctly for me using Mozilla 1.1 Alpha but it does work with IE6, Netscape 6.2 and Netscape Communicator 4.7 (but the page presented to Communicator is completely different to the others). This would suggest bad browser-sniffing but I've heard that the page does display correctly in Mozilla 1.0 (though I haven't tested this myself). I'll do some further investigating.
