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?


#92 Very interesting point of view

You really have a point. A lot of computer users don't even know what is HTML, now, try to explain to these users what is W3C compliant ...

Browsers, and software in general, should be made in a way that it would work in and with the environment in wich it will be used. Therefore, the interactive "Tag Upgrade" is a reallllyyyy good idea. I wonder how flexible and "upgradable" Nglayout is in that sense... does anybody know if, with its the current architechture, it is easy to add/correct HTML? This would be usefull not only in the sense that it would provide IE compatibility but that it could make it easy to write patches and upgrades to make the current browser compliant to the future revisions of HTML or XHTML.

Perhaps a plugin-like architechture to let third-party write these would be desirable?

anyway, very inspiring post alik :)
