NY Times: Alternative Browsers

NY Times on the web (free login required) writes about alternative browsers to the ‘big two’ Netscape and Internet Explorer. It references BrowserWatch.com a site dedicated to web browsing software which knows of at least 30 browsers. Opera (which is available for Linux) is mentioned as a speedy alternative. ‘…Opera offers the usual assortment of features (e-mail, address book, newsgroup reading, Internet chat) and Web standards (Java, JavaScript, 128-bit encryption for secure online banking, cascading style sheets, and so on). But what makes it special is a vast array of unusual and original features that make the Web more useful and less annoying…’ Netscape 6’s recent less than stellar debut makes experimentation with alternatives more attractive.
