MSN Slate Magazine: "Firefox trumps Internet Explorer"

Monday July 5th, 2004

Several readers wrote in to tell us that the MSN Slate Magazine ran an article recommending Mozilla Firefox over Internet Explorer last week. Author Paul Boutin mainly prefers Firefox for security reasons, with the browser's lack of support for ActiveX eliminating many virus and spyware concerns. While Slate is owned by Microsoft, it should be noted that the publication has always maintained that it is editorially independent and that Boutin is a freelance journalist.

There is a little trick you can use to open a new mail message in your default email application (at least it works under windows). It's not the same as starting an email client but it's all I usually need.

Just type mailto: in the address bar and hit enter. You could also make a bookmark of this 'link' and put it in your Toolbar Folder so it's always handy.
