Why Scott needs Mozilla

6th September 2002

Judging by the screenshot on this page, Scott really needs Mozilla :) I’m currently running Windows XP on a Pentium II with 128 MB of RAM but thanks to Mozilla’s tabbed browsing I have over 20 web pages open and my machine isn’t breaking a sweat (and that’s in addition to Eudora and mySQLFront). Best of all, my task bar stays nice and tidy as it only shows one instance of Mozilla. I know Scott’s itching to switch already so I’ll teasingly remind him that Mozilla can have multiple windows each with multiple tabs—so you can have a single window with a collection of sites for each item you are currently researching. More tabbed browsing advocacy from Dave Hyatt right here.
