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)."

"That a site could appear any day, or already exists and is exploiting users without my personal and specific knowledge supports your position that there are no threats to user systems and user data on the web?"

Of course not. That never was my position. My position was that arielb is more likely to get killed in a car wreck several times over than to visit a web page that compromises his or hers security.

"So you agree that there are risks to data security and system integrity on the web and in email?"

Yes, of course. The thing is I still don't see anything significant regarding web browsing.

Ok. ;) I trimmed. Sorry about that.
