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.

#4 You have no idea what you're talking about...

Well, at least not when you're talking about Macs. There have been 1GHz + Macs for quite some time now. The top-of-the-line dual PowerPC G4 Macs run at 1.25 GHz. None of the flat panel iMacs have ever run at 667 MHz -- the lowest speed for them is 700 MHz, which is due to be bumped soon. And the 700MHz iMac is nowhere near $2,000. And despite their lower MHz ratings, Apple computers do not feel "slow." Please do not spread fud about Mac hardware, when you clearly don't know what you're talking about.

Regarding the two browsers, both Safari and Chimera are very nice. Chimera is a bit slower on my two systems, but neither is actually "slow" by any measure.
