Mozilla would be a great web browser even if it wasn’t free. Based on Netscape’s Gecko, it features tabs (which allow the viewing of several pages in a single window), themes (which change the look and feel of the program), and it blocks pop-up windows without additional software. And did I mention that it blocks pop-ups without additional software?

Like a lot of open source software, it’s always in development and is occasionally buggy, but it’s very robust and well-developed. If you’re brave and cheap enough to use freeware, give Mozilla a try.

Update – The Mozilla Suite is still available but the standalone browser is now Firefox.

And "Mozilla" sounds really cool.

Things Ray Says #03

"I’m not certain how Nathaniel Hawthorne died, but I like to think that he fell into a river (a symbol of the inexorable passage of time and thus mortality) and was eaten by an allegory."

(Insert rimshot here.)

On Sunday I accompanied my gothique flatmate to an antique mall in Tomball (no, really); a town just north of Houston. We also passed through Spring (since it’s in Texas, I guess it’s “Sprang”) to gander at the faux restored "downtown". In Sprang, umm, Spring I noticed a sign pointing the way to a winery. The mere thought of a Texas winery gave rise to a lot of bad jokes on my part. Why should my Mme. Gothique suffer alone?
