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)."

You are replying to this message

I'll respond to both of you at the same time since your replies are too lame (sorry, but it's true) to warrant individual responses.

"Why are you using bugzilla to report bogus bugs?" " and not waste your own and other people's time by filing obviously invalid bugs in Bugzilla."

You mean 'invalid bugs' like a bug filed complaining about a pop machine not working? Or how person A owes person B some money? Or of the several other non-bug related submissions to bugzilla most of which were made by @<mozilla.org/@netscape.com> people? Let me guess, in addition to reading and posting at mozillazine, a 'mozilla advocacy' badge is required for this also. If that's the case then the irony is that the bug I filed is, indeed, entirely valid. ;)

"Right now, it just seems you have an issue with people who advocate Mozilla"

That's funny. I was just thinking the exact opposite. It seems to me that some people have problems with those who don't advocate mozilla.

"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."

Hmmm. I don't think so. You may want to take a fresh read through this thread. ;)
