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.

I've used IE since it was first packaged with Win95 right through to IE5, and also Netscape from version 3 (roughly).

Netscape has its bugs, and so does IE, but my experience with Netscape has been that it has managed to die, but not bring down the entire Windows shell. IE has brought down the entire shell on me. In both cases, it's been Java (as far as I can tell), where disabling Java fixes the problem.

In any case, IE's nice tight "integration" with Windows allows it to load faster than Netscape. Probably the main reason why I use it on a daily basis now.
