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)."

"Yes, you are ;) To deny that is silly. You're evangelizing s position that there are no real threats to computer users and therefore no one needs to take further precautions to secure their data."

I guess I'm silly then. ;) I told a single person who was distressed with downloading security updates for IE that if he/she was that bothered by it that he/she should take comfort in the fact that they are more likely to get killed in a car wreck (several times over) than to come across a web site that compromises their security.

No one has said a single thing to refute this. I'll give you a hint as to why -> Because you can't. ;)
