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.

As a Java/VB/Delphi Developer, only recently have I had to tred the frustrating waters of Web Development -- and what a pain it is!! Netscape SUCKS!! Can I say that again -- N E T S C A P E S U C K S!!! Ever see how each time you resize a Netscape window, it RE-LOADS the page, rather than just resize the screen and use Cached content, like IE does? it does the same when you click the back button to return to a page!!

Besides that, I'm SHOCKED at how incredibly frustrating doing SIMPLE HTML is, if one wants it to look the same on Netscape and IE! Simple things like Tables are easy to visualize on IE, whereas in Netscape, their behavious is not compliant with the spec!

With these little brats stop whining about how Mozilla/Netscape shouldn't be slapped on the buttocks, and get Mozilla out! There are still so many bugs in Mozilla, that I'm surprised they dare to complain! Apparently, Mozilla is supposed to be out this year sometime -- GOOD LUCK!!
