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!

George, George, George. What are you thinking? Probalby the most important aspect of the browser for web applications (and that's really where the web is going) is that the browser supports a standard HTML spec which includes CSS and DOM! How can you say more features is better than non-standardized html support??? If NS decided not to support the standard spec, firstly, they'd be the biggest hypocrites on the face of the planets touting openness but not supporting the open standard. Secondly, Navigator whould completely disappear from corporate business (you know, where NS sells their server products...you know...where they try to make their money...you know, the stuff that PAYS THE BILLS!). Obviously you haven't done too much web development if you think that CSS and full support of HTML 4.0 and DOM isn't that important!
