Why I Like Mozilla Today
So I’m doing some development – in ASP (but that doesn’t matter, could be anything). Things I love about Mozilla today for web development (using 1.21 on Windows 2000 Server):
- the installer lets me only put in a browser if I want (since it’s for testing, who needs a mail client?)
- The cookies manager is GREAT for doing anything where the look of the page is permissions based. One can easily delete a cookie, and set the browser to warn you of all new cookies, so you can really keep track of what’s happening in your app.
(Edit > Preferences > Privacy & Security > Cookies > Manage Stored Cookies)
- I can set it to stop popunders so I can research with no worries of untoward stuff showing up.
- I can always see the error messages of sites – (as opposed to Windows MSIE, where it conveniently “hides” error messages from me.
If you’ve not taken Mozilla for a spin, you’re missing out.
