Why UW choose Mozilla
In the fall quarter of 2002, University of Washington Computing & Communications discontinued its support for Netscape browsers in favor of the Mozilla browser.
Why? Here are some of their reasons:
- Block pop-up ads
- Tabbed browsing
- Faster web pages
- Support for multiple platforms
- Support for web standards
It's 2003 now and Netscape has all those features. Excpet no more future NetscapeComment by jdk at July 22, 2003 09:24 PM | Permalink
Mozilla was always *way* ahead of Netscape. All the cool features was in Mozilla, not in Netscape!
It's a shame that Netscape is dead, but it was never as good as browser as Mozilla. Mozilla was nice and clean. Netscape was bloated!
Mozilla is the future. Now we just gotta convince all the IE users of that....Comment by Henrik Gemal at July 22, 2003 09:31 PM | Permalink

You must be referring Mozilla Firebird as Mozilla and not the awful bloated Seamonkey

I like Mozilla Firebird but why would they want something that is slower at most pages, sometimes rejected from sites(You must have IE to enter) and they have Avant browser
That makes me look like I hate Firebird but Avant is Seamonkey and worseComment by jdk at July 22, 2003 10:01 PM | Permalink
Netscape has weird bookmarks, ICQ, AIM and Netscape Webmail included in it. And other things.
Mozilla Firebird slower than IE??? Mozilla Firebird is mush faster!Comment by Henrik Gemal at July 22, 2003 10:04 PM | Permalink
But middle-click, tabs, no loaded popups, is what makes firebird fast, not single page benchmark fast. Middle click is really handyComment by jdk at July 22, 2003 10:29 PM | Permalink
