Kim Komando Reviews Mozilla

Monday July 22nd, 2002

sacolcor wrote in to tell us that radio host Kim Komando has written about Mozilla in her latest syndicated newspaper column. Like most other people, Kim loves Mozilla's pop-up ad blocking and tabbed browsing but doubts that anybody will be able to dislodge Internet Explorer.

"This site looks best when viewed with Internet Explorer 6.0." *sigh*

I've only listened a couple times, but her advice the times I have listened tended to be "reboot and see if that helps" and she got all mad when some website had a hack to CyberSitter or some of those porn blockers....yeah, lady, like the only way to 1) see porn and 2) hack around CyberSitter is by this single website.

She seemed like a soccer mom stuck on a tech show.

#3 I'm confused.

(blockquote)It has the same tab feature as Netscape. This allows you to open new windows without cluttering the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Instead, the links to the various windows are found on the Sidebar. Tabs also are available for other things, such as Search.(/blockquote) I'm very confused now!

Shouldn't that be "Netscape has the same tab feature as Mozilla..." ?

I'm more confused about how she flipped from talking about the tabbed interface, to the sidebar tabs without skipping a beat. Implied that the website tabs were stored in the sidebar.

Hmm. I guess mpt was right about tabbed browsing being confusing. I always liked it, though. (scratches head)

Sorry, "I don't get it at all" was left over from another post. Doesn't really fit here.

#9 not confusing, just a weak writer

every review of tabs has been good. they politely stay out of the way of people who don't want them. the problem here is not with the software or even with the user understanding. the problem is just a weak writer.

As someone who always loved NS3 and hung with it a long d_mn time, hated the NS4 bloat/bugs, finally went to IE and ultimately became disenchanted with all the security issues related to the browser and Outlook, all I can do is quietly offer my opinions to others aunts/uncles/coworkers/etc that Mozilla's clean, to-the-point (unlike this missive) and doesn't place their data in jeopardy each time they pickup mail or browse to a .cz domain.

That's it. I feel clean and MS free again.
