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 understand the justification for XUL, and I've already said I believe it to be a good technology. I just don't believe that it's worth delaying Mozilla as much as it has and continues to do, even if it means that only a few platforms get the browser soon. Let's get it out on Windows, Linux (with either GTK, QT or both), and Macintosh. The other 1% of the world can wait for the XUL version. Besides, if a Linux version is provided, then presumably that means that FreeBSD, Solaris, and other Unix platforms that claim to be able to run Linux binaries will be taken care of as well.
