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)."

Even though I would agree that sometimes people in these forums tend to react in an oversensitive way to critical or even negative statements about Mozilla that do contain valid points, I think it is clear that someone has some serious issues here.

Kristen, it would help if you would make well-argued and clearly formulated points. It would also help if while you're doing this, you make a valid distinction between issues related to Mozilla and issues regarding Mozillazine and not waste your own and other people's time by filing obviously invalid bugs in Bugzilla. Right now, it just seems you have an issue with people who advocate Mozilla. It's no surprise that you can find those people here. But instead of giving them something to think about, you just behave like an adolescent who thinks it's fun to try and provoke and annoy others. I have been missing people like strauss and macpeep in these forums, but unfortunately you're not like them.
