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.
"Noone is going to download Netscape when Internet Explorer is good enough"
First of all that can't be true because Netscape 4.x is "good enough" (I use it every day), and people still spend hours of their time downloading IE! I do agree that Netscape would have been in a better position if they had released something earlier on, but I think they still have a chance. Plus, like someone mentioned above, once AOL's deal with MS is up Netscape 6 will be in the hands of 25 Million AOL users and will seriously tip the statistics scale in Netscape's favor.
