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 point is that you are at the mercy of every e-mail and every website you visit. You might not, I'll even say you probably will not, get exploited by someone taking advantage of the many wholes (18 atm) in IE. However, like I said, you are at the mercy of every website you visit, and every e-mail you choose to read (if you're using any form of Outlook to read it, this includes Outlook Express, Outlook 2002, Outlook XP, etc... I need to make that clear because people tend to argue with me about it if I don't, they don't seem to realize that Outlook means all versions). And I don't know about you, but that simple is not a position I want to be in. But that's just mean, each to their own I guess.
