Andy Ihnatko of Chicago Sun-Times Still Prefers Mozilla

Tuesday February 11th, 2003

Prognathous is back, this time with a link to an article at the Chicago Sun-Times entitled Mozilla still champ when it comes to stopping popups. In this report, columnist Andy Ihnatko goes in search of third-party enhancements to make Internet Explorer competitive with Mozilla and, to a lesser extent, Opera, Chimera and Safari. While Ihnatko largely succeeds in his mission, he concludes that he still likes Mozilla better.

ANDY IHNATKO is one conflicted puppy from what I gleaned from this article. It was almost like he felt that he had to defend the clunky, antiquated, security-prone, privacy-invading IE with all his references to "IE has it, too" add-ons (some quite costly?)

I can understand the need to provide balance when comparing browsers but, really, when the majority of the article ends up being a writer's version of "making a silk purse out of a sow's ear", I was left with wondering why he felt he had to go THAT far in the balancing act?

While his bottom line was that he preferred using Mozilla it seemed clear that he also preferred "writing" about IE.
