MozillaZine Readers Give Their Verdict on Safari

Sunday February 2nd, 2003

Last time, we asked you what you think about Apple's new KHTML-based Safari browser for Mac OS X. 1,979 readers shared their opinions with some interesting results. In a close call, 10% of you think that Safari is better than Chimera, while 11% believe it's not as good. Meanwhile, 23% want to know where the tabs are, reflecting the popularity of what many now see as an essential browser feature. A worrying 13% of you are sticking pins in your Hyatt voodoo dolls, perhaps suggesting that you're taking this all a little too seriously. Finally, 40% of you want one of Apple's new PowerBooks, which were also introduced at Macworld San Francisco. While this doesn't tell us whether the 17-inch or 12-inch model will be more popular, it does possibly indicate that many MozillaZine readers are largely apathetic towards Apple's new browser.

Our next poll was suggested by me (that's someone calling themselves 'me', not me as in the person writing this article). We want to know which of the components of the main Mozilla suite you use. Obviously we can't cover every possible combination, so pick the option that most closely matches your usage pattern. This poll also features the return of the 'telnet to port 80' option, which is back by popular demand. Get voting and keep watching the latest results to see what others think.

" I agree that a not-insignificant number of people use Moz mail but contend that they would be fine, if not delighted, to use one of the numerous good mail clients available on every platform while using Moz for browsing. There is zero benefit to combining mail and browsing in one app. And, since practically no one at all uses usenet anymore, there really are not many people using MozNews."

1) People using Mozilla Mail do NOT want to stop using it. If they would be "delighted" to use a different mail client, then WHY would they be using the Mozilla client now? Your assertion is absurd.

2) Millions of people use usenet and other news servers every day; I do not see how you can possibly justify your claim that "practically no at all uses usenet anymore."
