Mozilla 1.0 Release Rated Most Significant Event of 2002

Saturday January 11th, 2003

Our final poll of 2002 asked you to pick out the most significant event of the year. Of the 2,454 people who voted, a little over half (52%) thought it was the release of Mozilla 1.0. The start of the Phoenix project was the next most popular option, favoured by 18%. With a 10% vote share, the release of Netscape 7.0 just managed to beat the personal epiphany 9% of you experienced when you realised that pressing Ctrl+L (Mac: Cmd+L) moves the focus to the Location Bar. Next up was the launch of the Chimera project, which received 3% of the vote. The two Gecko-based clients released by AOL in 2002 got roughly equal numbers of votes, with AOL for Mac OS X (2%) narrowly beating CompuServe 7.0 (2%). Finally, 23 of you (0%) didn't like any of the options on the list.

For our next poll, we'd like to know what you think about Safari. That's Safari. One more time, for those of you who think we're ignoring it, Safari. Let us know what you think about Apple's new KHTML-based browser and watch the latest results to see if others agree.

If you're using Internet Explorer, then yes, the browsing is very sluggish -- because Internet Explorer is garbage. That's Microsoft's fault, not Apple's.

And again with the facts: no flat-panel iMac shipped with the "original Mac OS X."

Since I have one of the original flat panel iMacs (the high end one, 800 MHz w/SuperDrive), I think my experiences would be quite a bit more informed than yours. This system was never "slow," and has only gotten snappier with subsequent OS upgrades.
