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.

That may also be true, but then it raises the question: If Microsoft can pull off an sketchy standards compliant browser for Windows and Mac, why can't Netscape? Because I still think it may be acceptable if your browser isn't standards compliant, as long as it behaves, well, like IE. But Communicator, Lord help me, can't do a damn thing right. And it hurts to see it get only marginally better with every release. If anything, they could try at the very least to emulate IE until version 6.0 comes out.
