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.

I agree with what you say for the most part, but... the IE integration does play a rather crucial role as far as 'load' times are concerned:

Netscape 4.X loads damn near just as quick as IE on a ROM system. The main problem is when it comes to closing... NS require a few seconds to complete it's shutdown.

The irony behind all of this is that the process netscape.exe is actually waiting (the majority of the time) for processes create by MFC to shut down.

MFC, known to most as 'Microsoft Foundation Classes'... is known to those who know better as 'Microsofts Fucked-up Classes'. ;-)
