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)."

About Sending Params from Keywords (i.e. being able to use "g penguins" to search google.com for the word penguins) -- you say IE can't do this, yet you also say there may be a way to do this in the registry -- which is it?

IE's been able to do this since IE4 when it came bundled with QuickSearch.exe -- all QuickSearch does is modify one bit of the registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\g Set string (Default) = <http://www.google.com/search?q=%s>

That's it! You now have your Google Search.
