Our First Weekend Discussion
Friday February 11th, 2000
I've decided to try something new at MozillaZine: a "weekend discussion". Every Friday, we'll have a forum on a topic of interest to Mozilla users and developers. Hopefully it will generate some interesting conversations.
This week's topic is "Web Standards". What are your feelings about the current standards "process"? About Mozilla and its standards support? About what standards Mozilla should support in the future? I'm also interested in getting some opinions from Mozilla developers on this issue. How do they feel about being the "guinea pigs" of the standards process, being the first to implement standards specifications and also being the ones to deal with the vagaries and inconsistencies between revisions in the current specs? How are developers feeling about Mozilla's standards support so far?
Our forums are quite civil, so don't be afraid to speak your mind. We'd love to hear what you have to say. Just click the "responses" link below to get started.

Open Source is not mutually exclusive with commercial. Free Software is not mutually exclusive with commercial. AOL will be a hunk of cash off of mozilla. They make tons of money from advertising based on the browser and searches people do with it. If they were not standing to make money off of this product, they would not be funding it. That's FINE. The point is, the W3C does not endorse ANY reference implementations of ANY standard. That's not what they do. So mozilla can not be the reference.
