Description

10 years ago
According to Gérard Talbot:
"I'm sorry but this is clearly outdated stuff. It is now unanimously known
and recognized by web browser usage stats sources that MSIE 4.x and MSIE
5.x represents about 2% of the world usage stats. And MSIE6 SP2 is still
the most used browser version in the world and MSIE6 SP2 has popup
blocking. The quote about the ability to block pop-up windows was correct,
adequate and making sense in 2002, 2003 and 2004 but now in mid-2007, the
ability of blocking unrequested pop-up windows no longer means/refers to
an advantage of Firefox over MSIE. So that "such as..." proposition should
be updated to refer to a worthy advantage."

CCing PKim.
What do you say, we just get of the "such as" bit, and change the link to <http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/features.html>?
