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.
1) i use mozilla mail because its the most standard compliant html mail reader there is. period. i could be using eudora or outlook, but they both pale in comparison (not to mention one of the, to remain nameless *cough* is really happy to send viruses to all the people i care about, which i'm *not* down with). several of my non-techie friends just converted from IE to mozilla precisely because of the included mail client.
2) mail use is also starting to get replaced for many people by IM clients... does that mean everyone should stop making their mail programs? no, its a stupid suggestiong, there are millinos of people using Newsgroups and lots of people using Mozilla for them.
you are just wrong, deal with it.
