Weekend Discussion

Friday March 24th, 2000

Time for another weekend discussion. The question this weekend:

What do you feel is an appropriate level of integration between a browser and an Operating System? And at the other end of the spectrum, what are your feelings about Mozilla's cross-platform approach?

Hmmm... good information. Of course somewhat slanted the way it is presented, but the facts speak mainly for themselves. Plus IE tends to be more guilty of weird stuff anyway...

So, my conclusion is that if MS can get its act together and put Tasman into both platforms, then at least we'll have a decent base of HTML 4 and CSS1.

DOM will still be shot, but at least it'd be something...

They had BETTER even out the platforms and do it soon. Having a platform lag in comparison to another is sort of understandable, but whoever heard of totally different support for html across platforms. As it said, that could cause a major mess with regards to the sniffing.

I should go download the opera beta...

Anyway, sorry for being so off-topic here. Ok, my bad attempt to bring it on-topic: IE is too integrated in that it is totally different on different platforms. Mozilla is relatively the same across, so that's a good thing. ;)
