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?

I don't get all this standards-compliance crap! Mozilla needs to support all the features of every popular browser, that way, people will enjoy it compatibility with all pages. "Standards-compliance" in the sense they are using it is like not caring that English and Spanish are the the two most popular languages in thw world, and speaking Latin, even though nobody else is. Face it, people can't be popular on the web only making "standards-compliant" web pages. "EVERYBODY has to use it or we won't! We don't care that IE is more popular than Netscape and supports the div and span tags because Netscape doesn't yet!"

They ought to wait for every SINGLE browser to support something before they do!
