Now I don’t really mind Thurrott because I don’t know him or his writing very well.
It sounds like to me though he is just trying to get attention by being anti-Firefox when the rest of the world is swinging in the other direction. As Asa points out he has it all wrong on some of Firefox 2′s new features.
Paul Thurrott, in his somewhat late review, takes a look at Firefox 2′s new features. Unfortunately, and something I didn’t expect from Paul, it’s either the most intentionally misleading review of Firefox, or it’s a completely unserious piece of writing. Which of those two, I can’t say, but either way, it’s a disservice to his readers.
Rather than go through the whole review and try to correct it all, something that could take far more time than I’m willing to give it, let’s just look at Paul’s analysis of the Firefox 2 Phishing Protection feature.
This is not the first time Paul has gotten it wrong though. As Asa’s comments brought to light, he also said that Windows ME was exceptional.
