Rediff Asks if it's Time to Switch to Mozilla or Opera

Wednesday May 14th, 2003

Adam Hauner sent us a link to a rediff.com article about Internet Explorer alternatives such as Mozilla and Opera. The report briefly examines the advantages that the alternative browsers have over IE, including better security, tabbed browsing and pop-up blocking. It also mentions the wide range of Mozilla add-ons that are available, with a special mention given to the NewsMonster RSS feed reader.

It seems they're including the history of Mosaic, the browser IE was originally based on. Mosaic was first released in November of 1993 (see: <http://www.blooberry.com/…dexdot/history/mosaic.htm> ). I wouldn't consider Mosaic an early version of IE, but apparently rediff does.
