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.

"Wait until 6 comes out."

I've been hearing (and saying until recently) this for 2 years.

And I am not referring to AOL pushing Netscape 4, but Mozilla. If AOL wanted Mozilla out they'd have let the open source people work on the *browser* and let the e-mail and web page maker, IM etc either wait or move it to other paid developers.

I want a friggin' browser not an independent app that is really a web platform.

Mindless conformity and excuses no longer are god enough for me.
