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.

Well, I just downloaded the latest nightly, and it seems to be running ok, aside from a few weird 'refused connection' messages. ;) The reaction I get about the UI is "it's kinda weird, but cool..." of course, this is from other high school kids who can hardly remember life without the internet. ::grin:: It really isn't that hard to figure out if you have much experience with the net, and I doubt that a ton of people without that experience would be downloading a new browser anyway. Also, I still use navigator 4.6, and it rarely crashes, and I use ie5 for some stuff, and it also rarely crashes. I use netscape because I like the logical layout and easy access to bookmarks, etc. mozilla also has these features, but I don't use it too much because of those little quirks it still has. (I'm using the latest 7/23/00 build now) Anyway, as far as these things go, I'd say that it's all a matter of personal preference. Oh, and I'm using WIN 95, and I can remove IE... is the integration a win98 thing? I know it's used instead of windows explorer to find files and stuff in 98... oh well. Well, ya'll have a great day!
