ActiveState to Build Cross-Platform IDE Using Mozilla Foundation!

Thursday May 25th, 2000

Mitchell Baker wrote in to tell us that ActiveState is also using Mozilla as foundation of its cross platform IDE "Komodo."

Again, this damn "Mozilla is a platform" meme keeps turning up, refusing to be squashed by the "Mozilla should only be a browser" naysayers (the same folks, mind you, who admit that Microsoft is turning IE into a platform as well). When a company like ActiveState throws its development muscle behind Mozilla as it has with this announcement, it proves that Mozilla is actually being recognized as a key to future cross-platform development.

I thought I made it clear that I have no problems with Mozilla's development plan or what other developers choose to do, only with the concept of Mozilla as a platform somehow equal to Java, Win32, Linux/X, MacOS, etc.

I'm not one of the "well they should get the browser to work first before they do all that other stuff" idiots.

If that wasn't clear, apologies.
