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!

I probably wouldn't have posted this, but today i received an email from some person who told me to go fuck myself and go shove Nutscrap up my butt.

After more flaming emails between him and myself i find that he is a web developer.

I have said before and i'll say it again; most of IE users are web developers.

If i had to pick whether N5.0 had more features or had the NGlayout in it; i would pick more features. Ya, i want Netscape to support DHTML, CSS, ect...but no web sites use that, so what's the point? For the people at WSP saying that if Netscape5.0 doesn't support these standards that Netscape will die... Well, the only problem is, most normal human beings does give a damn if their browser supports DHTML or DOM or whatever else, but most people i talk to want a fast browser that has tons of features. The average joe smoe are the ones who determine Netscape fate, not some dumb W3C standards.

that's my 2 cents..
