Mozilla - Web Browser of Choice

May 8, 2002 Written by Charles Cook

Like mpt I am now using Mozilla as my web browser of choice. I'd rather not use client software which is integrated with the operating system (whatever that means) and IE continually crashes on my system since I installed some amazingly bad VPN client software from a company whose research labs used to be held with the highest regard (is it a useful rule of thumb that the more impressive the research labs the worse the actual software products a company sells?). I've had some problems with Mozilla on a couple of sites but on the whole it seems faster and doesn't crash when the VPN client software is running. From an ideological point of view there is also the feelgood factor of doing something (however pathetically small) to support the Internet as a non-proprietary environment.
