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 posted to 2 mozilla newsgroups regarding the feasability of making a gecko only release (some sort of gecko 1.0) before doing a full mozilla release. It was yesterday and I have not seen a response yet. If it's possible I think it would do a whole lot of good. This would allow programmers and other companies to already start integrating the rendering engine instead of waiting for the whole mozilla release.

In the past neoplanet had shown interest in using gecko. Getting a stable rendering engine out there would be a benefit.

What are the realities of development in mozilla that would hold back such a release?
