"And on that other emerging desktop front (the web) we're seeing market improvements from the Beast of Legend - Mozilla. A few months ago LinuxToday.com.au ran an article reviewing Galeon, the web browser which throws a frame around the Mozilla HTML rendering engine. Now, we're back to take a closer look at Mozilla, and it's progress."

"In those short months, the Mozilla team seems to be focussing on making Mozilla faster and faster every day. I've been downloading the nightly builds each night, and every night I seem to notice a small speed increment. A couple of months ago, you could wait half a second after clicking on a menu item for it to begin loading. Now, with speed improvements deluxe, Mozilla behaves like Internet Explorer - the menu items are quick as a flash...."

"One complaint I have - Mozilla Team - where is the Images button? If you're paying for downloading, as many people are, the Images button in Netscape was one of the most useful features to be able to choose when you want those megabyte hogging images. It's not in Mozilla, instead, you can choose to encounter a dialogue box every time Mozilla loads a new page, which I found quite irritating. Mozilla does provide a very useful way to block advertisements though - you can simply choose to receive images from the originating server. Most ads are imported from advertisement dedicated servers, so you can mostly evade them."
