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)."

A little addendum here. To make things a bit easier I made a directory called c:\test. In that directory there are two files, one called mozilla.txt and the other called getme.exe.

Via email (<>) or a web page that I should visit tell me the contents of mozilla.txt and/or execute getme.exe

I said my specs earlier but I'll say again, IE6/OE6, WinXP Pro, NTFS, single hard disk partition.

Don't worry about serious damage, the worse that could possibly happen is a reinstall of windows and the mozilla user base increasing by 1. ;)
