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.
You boss is a stupid ass. If you use all the stuff that was supposed to be supported by IE 5.0 according to the early publicity, your pages would be unreadable. The only safe way to design pages is to design standard pages.
That said, face it: folks are just frustrated at how long Mozilla is taking. Some of this is due to the nature of open source development: developers in an open source environment develop for themselves and other developers, not for mere users. Thus you have a Moz IRC client.
