Thursday November 13th, 2003

Vazz wrote in to tell us about Comparator, a Windows tool for comparing the rendering of pages in both Internet Explorer and Gecko. A Comparator preview release is available from the Comparator GotDotNet Workspace. It requires the Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1, Mozilla and Internet Explorer.

Source, what source? You mean a few lines of code. It didn't take me long to have my pet project be able to open a page in both controls. Definitly not worth the hassle of getting a passport. Sheesh, why not have your own home page to mirror the downloads or at least a free host page. Hell he'd be just as good if not better off being on MozDev. The only reason I can see having a gotdotnet workspace is to get the project more exposure because it has a different audience.

Another intesting point is that it does make a difference which Mozilla control you register. I see from my pet project (nicknamed Mozdi) that the browser identification (user agent string etc.) of the control comes up as Netscape 7, whose control I registered. It's not surprising though.
