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.

The new popup-blocker in 1.3b is a big backwards step from the old one. The "block unrequested popups" pref got it 99% right with no effort whatsoever, no matter how many sites I visited. The new "whitelist" means that I have to add every site with popups to it, _and_ that means I get unrequested popups from that site (i.e. ads) as well as requested ones.
