Computerworld's Cusumano Takes Another Look at Mozilla

Monday November 1st, 1999

Mike Cusumano, writer of the Computerworld article that was much derided in our forum has taken a fresh look at Mozilla, and in his latest article at Computerworld has come to a different conclusion. I would like to thank him for having the fortitude to revisit Mozilla, and for posting his apology in his column.

You've *never* seen Netscape trash the OS?

I sure have, shortly after being to a sight that invoked Netscape's JVM. When I exit Netscape an unkillable (on Win9X) thread exists that forces me to CTRL-ALT-DELETE twice to reboot! Fortunatley, on NT the thread is killable.

Another screwed up thing is when it just decides to hang around in memory after I've exited, sometimes as a visible task other time as a hidden task.

My experience with IE5 has been very good so far. It's fast, stable, customizable, and feature rich.

Hopefully, Mozilla will catch up. I really hope they change their default UI though.
