Full Article Attached Editorial: NGLayout in Communicator 5.0 - Truth and Consequences

Thursday October 1st, 1998

I've had a few days to consider the NGLayout / Communicator 5.0 issue and the WSP petition, and finally have some words to speak on it. So, click "Full Article" below if you're interested in reading mozillaZine's first editorial opinion piece.

I should make clear before you start that mozillaZine is an independent site, and the opinions expressed in this article and in past articles in no way represent the feelings or opinions of the Mozilla Project or Netscape. We like the guys, but we would never presume to speak for them!

The main reason i singned the petition is because it is to much to develop a web site twice .. Once for IE and once for NS, as the saying goes, when u have to suit both, you will get the -worst- of both worlds, limitiations of both browsers, and non of its name specific functions. Thus a good ccs/html4.0 would benifit me, and the whole web greatly ..

And as far the comunity goes, do what i do, i want the nglayout engine, so i help the coding effort best i can .. And i sugest everyone tries to do the same, if you want it to badly that we have to slam our friend netscape/mozilla, it better be worth coding for!!
