Full Article Attached Astounding Comments From the WSP

Thursday July 20th, 2000

The WSP (Web Standards Project) now states that it is interested in released products more than compliance, and has released one of the most astounding pieces of work I have seen come out of their office.

The WaSP, a pseudonym which speaks for the whole WSP (or at least its leaders) has written a piece taking Netscape to task for failing to produce a browser in the allotted time limit. Click "Full Article..." below to read my response. For the record, I am not an employee of Netscape.

You're telling me Netscape doesn't have security bugs? HAHAHAHAHAHA. There have been just as many Javascript glitches in NS as there have been in IE.

IE fixes them without putting out a new version. WindowsUpdate. NS requires people to download 15 megs so AOL can sneak on more crap like Shop@Netscape and WinAmp.

And I don't think it's a "few seconds". I work at a web development company. We had a page that used lots of complex tables. On a P3-667 on a LAN, IE took less than a second. Netscape 4.73 took 30 seconds to render the table. The whole browser was locked while it rendered. A Mozilla M17 nightly was just a tad slower than IE.
