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 completely. Chris, you abdicated all personal responsibility and blame all NNs problems on Microsoft. Guess what? I was raised on Netscape but switched to MS because it does the things I need it to do. I try to make my code compliant for Netscape but it's so dang buggy I end up spending hours and guess who I blame? Microsoft? No! I blame Netscape. I reiterate the previous author's sentiment: quit whining and deal with *your* problems. Microsoft isn't your biggest problem or even your second biggest problem and when you accept some personal responsibility then perhaps I'll think about using your products again but I'm not holding my breath. Seems like you guys would rather whine than actually FIX things.
