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)."

"From where you're sitting all sorts of software has problems so using the software with the most problems and the most people attacking it is better than using sofware with the fewest problems and the fewest people attacking it?"

Let me get this straight then. We should all use what isn't used much in order to best protect ourselves? I'm detecting a catch-22 in this. ;)

How about some sensible user education, use of av software, and maybe even firewalls instead? Maybe even better server side protection? I don't believe there is a product in the world that can replace all of that.
